    WOW, I think you did a great job with this one, Harry. I am seeing great entries tonight. Mine is kind of an oldie I changed for the contest. I was angry at the time (but now they have really cleaned up their act and the lines are much faster there!) LUv, Andrea

    Holy cow! Look at this beauty! Excellent dig-deep-despair alliteration. Perfect! It will be among the winners. Meanwhile, it goes to my FAVs! Great senryu, Harry! Ruben.

    It does not take long to fall into poverty these days, Harry. Brilliant senryu that conveys a strong message with just a few words. I think this will do very well in the contest! Love, Carolyn
