The Frugal Rapper...

Don’t call me cheap, I prefer conserving,

Even when I sleep, I dream of preserving.

A few bucks here, no pennies to spare

The elevator has a fare, I'm skinny from stairs.


My cheapness is known, at stores its feared,

I googled frugal and my image appeared.

I may be scrimpy, at my discretion,

but I have to be chintzy, or risk a recession.


Money is tight, and my budget is stretched,

If the fruit is ripe, my bucket is fetched

I'm a prudent student with an ear for a steal,

a one dollar scholar, who will steer for a deal.


I ordered delivery just to get a ride home,

met the guy at the store and then borrowed his phone.

Told the driver that it's nice to meetcha',

drop me off right here, I have a coupon for that pizza.

This is hysterical. I never thought about ordering takeout for a ride home. Could have used that when my car broke down. LOL
