If Love Has a Price

These are two related raiku (rhyming haiku) about the idea that sacrifice cannot buy love, or anything else of value. An explanation of these poems can be found in this essay.

if love has a price
only complete sacrifice
for love will suffice

if love’s always free
sacrifice could never be
to any degree
