I think the middle one was best. You could get hooked on that :-)

Jane Doe said...

Although they are all good, I like the first one the best.

pia said...

Actually the third made me laugh which I need because of what you said on the first--that one was great

tumblewords said...

Have to say, I have no faves - like them all!

pjd said...

anthony, be careful out there... :-)

jane, thanks for the comment. the first one is obviously in honor of the fifth anniversary.

pia, great to see you again... though it took me a while to understand what you meant. I finally got it, but at first I thought you meant the two were somehow connected.

paisley said...

every one a gem in it's own area of expertise... that last one is a kicker!!!!

Heather Kathleen said...

i CANNOT pick a favorite because they are all fantastic. dammit.

Sherry ~ Cherie ~ ms. herbes de provence said...

All excellent -- as usual. All with different themes ... no. one very good.....

Red said...

We're supposed to pick a favorite? I enjoyed them all.
Im a lover of the Haiku :)

I like them all. The second one, though, stands out.

Remiman said...

You have the gift buddy!

lissa said...

a serious set of haikus (is haiku plural or singular?), so much in so little space.

WriterKat said...

love them! I like the 3rd best, good contrast with confuse/understood.

Redness said...

Perfect adore them all - you're so darn clever ;)

UL said...

first for me....short and to the point! blood for oil, what has the world come to?

Christine said...

nteresting how you weave the words into three separate poems. For me, it created a cohesion between the three. You could even think about joining them somehow. It's interesting how the word money can be seen in so many contexts.

gautami tripathy said...

I like all! They tell so much!

pjd said...

Thanks again for the comments, all. I really enjoyed the diversity of all your creations as well.

OneMoreBeliever said...

spoken well, sometimes we lose sight of whaz really going on... enjoyed the diversity of money you spoke of...i liked em all...

Bone said...

You have an ability to say a whole lot in just seventeen syllables.

I really liked the third for its depth. Although the second--paying two girls to mudwrestle--was great, too :)

pjd said...

ah, bone, mud wrestling... you're the first to mention it, but I like that interpretation best of all.

TC said...

I loved the last one. :)
