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!

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
