Finders Keepers

image

I found a penny
On the ground
Small, slightly shiny
Flat and round
I picked it up
To bring me luck
Heads or tails?
Heads it was;
And if all else fails
I can pop it in a wishing well
That will bring me luck
I can tell
Unless the well is broken
In which case
The penny will just be a token
Gesture from me to it
‘Easy come, easy go’
That is another aphorism
That I know.
And if you want to comment
Your thoughts
Upon my words…
I have payment.

    A year ago and this was one of my ‘cut-price’ postings – only a penny. G:)
