Counting pennies

I’m good at counting pennies

I’ve done it from time to time

But the silvers are a little trickier

It’s not long that they are mine

Not having money isn’t so bad

But it’s not that good either

I’m good at counting pennies

They seem to have stuck around

As I searched my room for some coins

The pennies are the ones I mostly found

    • i’m sure i will be in this situation many times before my time is out but as painful as it is to count the pennies I know enough to know happiness does not need to be bought.
