(Similarly constructed poems involving human nature, are generally excluded from haiku, and reserved specifically for Senryū.)

Note: "pay the piper" ( meaning -- )
"to accept the unpleasant results of something you have done"

One Single Impression: Change

C h a n g e;
Tea Party's dream

Government towers
Change--the order of the day
Less regulation
More power by the people
Taxes lower we demand
