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.
