A Penny For Your Thoughts - Poem by Joe Rosochacki
Abraham, you are about to undergo a "tail lift",
You replaced the Indian penny in 1909,
And for your centennial, your tail
is going to have a contemporary design,
The almost worthless penny adds up to
Useless dollars soon all replaced debit/credit cards
Copper is at a premium, so what it cost to strike your image,
Isn't worth the cost.
Oh Abraham, Jefferson, Roosevelt, Washington, Kennedy,
And soon to be Jefferson,
There is no numerical number placed,
What fraction thereof a dollar the coin may be.
