Poets and the Recession

NPR did this interesting segement about poets and how they are dealing with the recession. The main point is that poets have their own economy and though the recession is effecting everyone, poets and the "pobiz" i.e. poetry business, is still moving along. Planet Money even made a call for recession haikus like the one below.
