My Grandpa's Store - Poem by Reason A. Poteet
Some sixty years past my Paw owned a store.
A penny case held tiny toys and balloons
and there was wrapped candy with gum galore.
Got a penny? Might as well ask for the moon.
A penny case held tiny toys and balloons;
I rarely had a penny to squeeze tight in hand.
Got a penny? might as well ask for the moon;
Paw was too busy stocking boxes and cans.
I rarely had pennies; I did have two hands;
a penny was promised if I'd sweep the floor
and keep the shelves stocked with boxes and cans.
A penny was paid for a hour's work or more.
A penny was promised if I'd sweep the floor
to earn for wrapped candy and gum galore.
A penny was paid for a hour's work or more
some sixty years past when my Paw owned a store.
