A penny-pincher’s lesson
Is a very high price to pay.
Did I lose all that I love,
By ruining another day?
“A penny saved is a penny earned”
Is a quote by Benjamin Franklin,
How many Pennies did I earn
By not going to Baskin-Robbins?
Just about three thousand Pennies,
So that is the amount I earned.
But it cost me so much more,
This is the lesson I learned.
My love for you is very strong,
What happened doesn’t make sense.
I don’t know how much love is worth,
But I know it’s more than three thousand cents.
