Penny Thoughts

A penny for your thoughts my mother used to say
I wondered if she thought my thoughts just worth penny
Conversations at our house were mostly one-way
She would say children are seen not heard, times_many

I wondered if she thought my thoughts just worth penny
She didn't encourage me  to speak anyway
She would say children are seen not heard, times_ many
Those thoughts just bounced around in my head everyday

She didn't encourage me to speak anyway
I asked many questions as high priced attorney
Those thoughts just bounced around in my head everyday
Because I was not free to speak mind went on journey

I asked many questions as high priced attorney
Conversations at our house were mostly one-way
Those thoughts just bounced around in my head everyday
A penny for your thoughts my mother used to say

    I like how you took that proverb and turned it into a nice rhyming pantoum. Enjoyed the part about the attorney!

    Your mother sounds a lot like my father. Great pantoum. This is a winner.

    this is brilliant Sara, you know, i've followed your poetry for a while now, and the fact that your from, i think Georgia USA, what you write relates so much to England, your opening lines in this wonderful poem epitomizes this.

    How sad that your mom didn't want you to talk! that line "I wondered if my she thought my thoughts just worth a penny" is gut wrenching! how belittled you must have felt...great piece- best wishes in the contest :)
