Cash

Inspiration, Life, Memories, Poetry

#Fowc #Cash

I remember as a kid

collecting the copper coins

in an old tea caddy

Ten penny chocolate drops

your average spend

for a little lads pocket

sweets switched for comic books

saving enamel for copper

and a weeks reading funnies

Hello Mister Twenty Pence

Farewell Mr Pound Note

Miss Shiny Pound has Arrived

Gold Coins saved for Blue Notes

Blue Notes saved for Orange Notes

Orange Notes saved for Purple Notes

Plastic for Paper ? A Surprise indeed

Silver shines in the plastic interior

Value reflected in a fancy Hologram
