Sign of the times

((a haiku sequence) 

        again, she tidies
        the almost empty desk
        another lay-off

        job fair 
        the line keeps growing
        longer and longer

        foreclosed house
        the children’s swing
        stops swinging

        tent city
        they welcome
        the newcomers
