Dr John Celes
Sonnet: Dying for a Damned Dime!
When phones allow you only for a dime,
Although your wallet’s full of paper cash,
An awful situation becomes the clime –
It lands upon your heart as if like lash!
Where do you go for dimes for long a call?
The machine ought to dispense coins for notes!
Is it impossible to one install?
Machines may come if only linked to votes!
So, dimes and pennies matter like dollars!
A petty thing may lead to piquant states;
Only the neck level needs ties, collars!
The want of simple things can worsen fates.
The dime is important for making calls!
Prudence is needed to avoiding falls!
