a writeclub piece by inky

In their own way

the bank staff declared

an unofficial holiday

Bold as brass – they walked out with sass

with all the copper pennies

increasing the cost of the sweet shops

the 99p shops and chemmies

for while they were living the high life

with the money that they had pinched

the storeholders had to recoup their loss

and the shoppers – they all flinched

for as 1p turned to 2p,

2p turned to five

and 10p treats rose to 50p

with kids screaming “Man Alive!”
