Have to wait and see who this could be!
So last week here at our Canadian creek the penny officially became dead. Yep, off with its copper head. Or whatever it is made out of. That cat is too lazy to show that fact some love. That means now if it comes to $1.96 you are in a fix. But that isn't the worst part which I will show at my cart.
Step on our Canadian shore,
Bring your snowshoes to explore.
But forget some sayings you once had.
For they are no longer valid at our pad.
No finding pennies for good luck,
Instead throw salt and make people duck.
In for a penny, in for a pound,
I guess that would be nickel as up you round.
No longer can be called a bad penny,
Because there just isn`t any.
At least nothing can cost you a pretty penny,
So you can buy moose tails, many.
It even helps out poor you,
For no longer will you be blue.
You won`t feel like a penny waiting for change.
Boy, that was lame at my range.
I guess one still will stick,
As here it does the trick.
Now no one will have two pennies to rub together.
Think that will make all the same under any weather?
And you will feel the burn,
As a penny saved is a penny you could earn.
But now there is none,
Ruining your penny saving fun.
Fools will still turn up too,
But won`t be like a bad penny that they come due.
Instead will have to be like a quarter,
Or we just send all the fools across the border.
And this last one bothers me,
As I don`t give away things for free.
I have to eat you know,
So I hate to see this one go.
A penny for your thoughts.
Really hurts me lots.
I have lots of thoughts,
So I could have plenty of penny plots.
But at least we still have the loonie,
And if that isn`t enough the toonie.
Now if we were tiny,
We`d be a bit cartoony.
Just had to give that a go. Overall glad we no longer have to carry those things around at our show. But hmm rounding up or down? I bet down will be were all go to make us frown. Anything to save a buck, right? Which is why pennies are gone to the dead of night. Sorry penny, I don`t mourn your pass but you were fun to hit around the floor by my little rhyming ass.
Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.
