to each his own. I could to without the gent with a tent. Why do we even have the pennies, nickels and dimes, anyway? I've such a collection of small change I need to take it to the grocery and use the machine that takes coins and get the cash that will surely add up to quite a bit. Neat rhyme with rrasors, lasers, tasers, and rent, gent, and tent. judi

What a funny poem, Bill. At first, I thought you were entering the contest that had 7 lines with alliteration in them, but I am so glad you used all of your syllables to create this humorous offering. Great job.

I like it when you write poetry. in my opinion, this form of writing is the perfect showcase for your quirky sense of humour.

    I have kept the comma (I?m so bad), but removed the mid-sentence quotation marks that followed. Thank you, Katherine.

A word to the wise, do not close your eyes. As a matter of fact, if you want to remain alive on the earth, give that tent a very wide berth. Hold tightly to your dad's hand, he is the most trustworthy man. Keep your shiny nickel in your pocket, at least until you can add a few more to it, so that you can buy something nice.

Is that what Jefferson is doing on that nickel "blowing bubbles from his now?" I am a bit divided about what I think of this president after what I read lately. But who uses cash these days anyway?

    Scratch hard enough and you*ll find a flawed human under every legend. It depends on if that*s what you*re looking for.

    So true! I guess we can't give the whole picture to kids. I was appalled at his going behind Washington's back.

What fun! This poem reminds me so much of the poetry I used to read as a child. It's fun and it's funny. It creates wonderful pictures in the imagination. The opening question is a great hook.

Like buttuh, my friend, like buttuh. I may be deluded, but I picture you sitting down at your computer and knocking these little gems of rhythm, rhyme, and ironic twists in ten minutes time. Don't tell me any differently. I won't believe you.

    Thank you, Jay, for giving this a look. I will say that The labor of rhyme and revision was less intense for this legal tender tale.
