Money Tree

A little lad

threw a pound coin

down into rich brown soil

his dad sat watching smiling

as the lad he worked and toiled

But one day, in the summer

to everyone’s surprise

a stalk of silver colour

started to arise

and when the plant did flower

to the little lads glee

Blue and Orange and Purple Flowers

looked like Mum and dads money

Now the family kept it a secret

in case others paid garden a view

for the PM said there’s no money tree

apart from this one – they said – it’s new
