WHAT ARE THEY?

By Josie Whitehead

What Are They

?

You can earn them, you can spend them

     You can save them, if you can

And perhaps you might invest them

     In a bank or pension plan.

   

You can polish every single one -

       And they’ll shine just like the sun -

But I think that spending lots of them

      Might bring you much more fun.

 

 You cannot plant them in the ground;

      I’m sure they will not grow.

  And none of them are instruments

        To beat or even blow!    

 

You’d be silly if you ate these things!

      They’d be quite hard to chew -

And a coin can’t do what I can do -

       That’s write a poem for you!
