Did you know that many countries have given pennies the heave ho? Wowee, that must mean things really went to shit you know. We can't not have a penny for your thoughts. We just need lots. Err umm, nope. Maybe the US should finally yank out the rope.
Pennies are great.
Idioms are first rate.
That we sure know.
Already gave that a go.
Pennies are worth one cent.
Duh, does your brain have a dent?
Are you saying that to me?
Thinking it at your sea?
But guess what?
They must be made by a mutt.
They cost more than one cent to make.
Hmmm, need a double take?
One cent costs more than one cent.
Damn, whoever made that has a dent.
Let's keep things that cost more to make than what they are worth.
That oh so very great knowledge should be spread across Earth.
Whoopsy, other countries got a grip.
They let the penny rip.
Saving some dough with ease.
Boy, was that a breeze.
But wait, there is a penny brigade.
Their mandate is to never let the penny fade.
Nope, can't have that.
Some have brains of scat.
Oh and we can't give them the heave ho.
We need to fill space in a news show.
That is right one and all.
Some days there are no shootings to give a call.
So we need to go throw pennies on the ground.
We love to hear their clanging sound.
Then we film and watch as people go by.
They don't pick up pennies when they catch their eye.
Woweee, that is first rate news.
How can such a story lose?
It has only been done 1000 times before.
What's one more encore.
And there is one other reason.
We surely can't commit penny treason.
People need them so they can throw them in the trash.
Garbage workers need a tip in cash.
Pfffft, do you pick pennies up off the ground? I had to give this a go when an article was found. All the reasons the penny won't die south of the border. Hmm, which is the lamest of that order? I'm not sure what would take the cake. But a penny millionaire they could make. Estimated to be millions of pennies in landfills. Go digging and you could have millionaire thrills. A disease may also come to pass. Those landfills are far too germy for my little rhyming ass.
Later all, have a nice fall.
