Make Any Cents - An Original Poem by Christopher Dapo

Money, funny, ca-ching

Care to hear the change sing?

Silver and gold for everything

Trinkets go with the dough you bring


Let in a laugh and out a holler

Pay them bills with every dollar

Raise the rents in due nonsense

Five-ing and dime-ing cashing in your cents


Where did all the money go?

What went wrong with the cash-flow?

If you've seen it tell me if you know

'Fore I go robbing, bobbing for dinero


Be forgettive, your account's on the brink

In the negative soon it will sink

Suddenly you're jumping at every coin

Trying to stand from being kicked in the groin


Now tie that neuse, that pocket's feeling loose

The hole's been burnt and now you're feeling hurt

There's no masseuse to rescue you from that caboose

Learned all you learnt and now your home is in the dirt.

Useful hub highlighting the value of money,,,, When we have it we don't have value for it...

Thank you for visiting, Vidya Mallar! Money is always forced to be a big part of life, no matter who or where we are, so there's always something to be had, done or said about it's pro's and con's. Above all, though, like you said, we forget what's truly valuable when we detract from what's supposed to be valuable with cold, harsh monitarial perceptions.

A great comment, thank you!

Money, the root of all evil, so they say, but we do need some if we're going to eat and survive. Have a great day.
