Cash

#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

Challenge 30 – No13

“Balance”

#Challenge30 #photography #balance

They say the economy’s stable…

tell that to the change on the corner of my bedside table

I took it out of the pocket of a pair of trousers i threw into the laundry and they landed on the table like this

The coinage will, of course be spent sometime soon – or stuck in the piggybank. But for now they sit on the corner of my unit

Balancing like acrobats at a circus.

New Religion

Congregate

The atmosphere is electric

some gathered there would say evangelic

as the lights flicker around the evening sky

like acolytes the security guards wait

for the signal to lower the velvet barriers

countdown progresses

as a one hit wonder presses a golden button

with that actress you know off the daily soap opera

and then the worship begins

as the bells ring out

and the dinero fills the tills

as the worshippers take their communion home

in the form of homeware, electricals or fashion
