The penny drops,
and guess what…it’s branded!
Like us, wearing swanky shoes,
but the poor? *stamp* REPRIMANDED.
CHANGE……is a poor mans thing,
for only he truly bears the weight of the coin,
these depthless, faceless things.
A shiny nickel gleams at “what a bum might do”,
but tell me, what could a shiny nickel really change for you?
You, yes you, the benefactor of nothing,
contributing your money to a lot of over-the-counter bluffing.
Someone who shits cash regularly,
like the arse of an ATM,
eyes watering over watermarks,
change sunken to the bottom of tins.
Flows of cash will drown your change,
and your account of this life will remain the same,
a penny is a poor man’s bid to fame,
like The Rich Man’s Pound will entertain.
