It’s just a penny they would say,

But wouldn’t look at all it’s worth.

It’s such a small thing they’d think,

But it’s big enough to hurt.

It could leave you broke,

And lying on the floor.

Too many pennies,

Could have you walking out the door.

You could have the newest one,

Fresh off the press.

But unless you take care of it,

It will become a tarnished mess.

You could pass it along,

For those in need.

But don’t hope for it back,

Because a penny can turn to greed.
