Here’s my second attempt at a verse that goes up by a syllable each line, then down the same way. And since this one maxes at ten, according to Dale it’s a double etheree. This was quite a bit of fun to work out. 🙂

No dough.
laughs in my face!
ATMs spit out
their paper tongues at me.
“Balance at zero now, dude.
Deposit more funds if you hope
to get any more cash out of me.
It seems your account’s overdrawn – again.”
“Well I would if I could, believe me!
I’m a starving author you know – 
earnings don’t match my outgo,
insensate ATM!
Just one more twenty.
My wallet’s so
