Dollars spent here there
Unless income exceeds spent
Each must pay piper

Acrostics Only: Prompt B: Acrostic Haiku (AH) - DUE
(A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having 3 un-rhymed lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.)

(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"
i.e. "pay the price"

My daughter is very impressed to read your acrostics haiku. It's not simple to compose them. Well done, Dr Jim :)
