more football – limerick challenge

by billgncs

Poetry challenge: Limerick.

economic cents

by billgncs

Karen at reason2rhyme has suggested we write a poem to or about an inanimate object. This is what came to mind…

alas poor penny upon the floor
does no one want you anymore ?
my children pause, forbear to stoop
and pocket you in one deft swoop
