credit cards haiku examples

these are actually old haiku poems of mine, from a previous haiku poetry blog. my apologies to any readers who have already seen these. but i thought i'd post them here as well, as i was rather fond of them. :)


first job, first paycheck
card application approved -
let the good times roll


stopping by the mall
can fin'lly get that new phone -
heady with new wealth


front of the counter
slice of plastic being swiped -
a rite of passage


needing comfort food
no cash, but i have plastic -
maybe just this once


card credit maxed out
needing to go out tonight -
need another card


marrying today
kept my box of cards secret -
something borrowed, blue


he keeps on calling
won't take no for an answer
demanding i pay


didn't learn a thing about
compound interest


these debts overwhelm
online, i seek a way out
i am not alone


final payment made
twenty years in the making
finally i'm free

thank you for visiting this haiku poem blog. :)


  1. haha, those are funny. credit cards can be tricky. thus i don't have one.

  2. hello, kouji! thanks for sharing me the good news this morning! read my new post!

  3. I never got a credit card (never qualified for it), but I had been using a lot of debit cards and ATMs for those swipes.

    I was once a spender when I got a good amount of money in my hands. I would find myself running out of cash after spending something that I don't really need.

  4. I really love #6!! there are many ways you could say it.

  5. thanks for the comment, sara. :)
