Making Cents


Making Cents

I heard that thoughts
cost just a penny,
so I tried to sell mine
but I didn't have any.

I heard that some nickels
are wood, like a tree.
So I chopped up a log,
now I'm rich as can be.

I heard that girls
are a dime a dozen
So I bought me 9 sisters,
2 moms and a cousin.

I heard that a quarter
won't stretch very far.
I found out it was true
and I still have the scar.

I find money matters
to be very strange.
But I'll learn, 'cause I don't want to be
scared of change.

I am trying to find a publisher or agent
to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
