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!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
