Cents (Or Less) - Poem by mark bennett

it will never be on the evening news. it will never be on the best-sellers list. it will never be made into a TV movie. it wont even make the back page of the morning paper. its seldom spoken for and even less often heard... and that is the truth. it doesn't come in a bottle. it doesn't grow on a tree. but, it doesn't cost much; in fact, its practically free. just six common cents going 'round so, keep your ear to the ground and listen for that sound. it might not get you into heaven, but it will not take you to hell. just find your peace and speak it- and hope it rings like a Liberty Bell. and if it doesn't crack the first time... you can ring it 'till it will
