Farther than the one coin

The dollar learns it’s value,
No longer associated with the cents;
Terms coined in common law
Rise up to meet your equal

The pound deserves a man
Not a boy in transition
Realises to great parallels
Where the banker miscounted

Pennies stacked high,
Still with potential energy
To fall, much farther than the one coin,
The one in control, the coin so many hands had touched

Suitors flip and spenders drip
The dollar maintains a strong heading.
Shall not be tied down nor wasted
In the sweaty hand of the frugal romantic
