A Penny-a-Piece

What can you get for a penny a piece?

A penny for the old man
That beggar down the street;
A penny for the young girl
Stripped for men to see!

A penny for your altruistic name
A penny for your pleasure
A penny, that’s all you need –
To buy you a sea of treasure.

A penny for the businessman
And his darkly polished feet;
A penny for the artisan
For the chimneys that he sweeps!

A penny for your darling smile
A penny for your hatred
A penny lasts several lifetimes –
Or ’til words are become sacred.



For what in this world ain’t a penny-a-piece?
