Demise of the Penny Coin

 

A penny for my thoughts you say?

A penny won’t buy the time of day.

Inflation has jacked the price you see;

Lincoln just isn’t the man he used to be.

The copper coin once served a purpose;

now the cent is just unwanted surplus.

A penny for my thoughts you say?

At least a nickel you’ll have to pay!
