A penny might procure a thought,
If intellect could yet be bought.
And yet, to transform hearts and minds,
We need to change our paradigms.
In many quarters, most intense,
Majority may toss two cents –
Opinions subject to purloin,
Determined by a toss of coin.
Awareness now of simpler times,
When candy bars and tolls cost dimes,
Demands revisitation dear,
For that’s a long way back from here.
Our currency has lost its gold.
Majorities are bought and sold.
We’re turned the corner, past attack.
I think I want my nickel back.
