ILL KEEP BOTH COINS

There is more than one value of a Browned-Coin and no matter how hard it may be to accept and appreciate their worth I unlike you have decided to keep both coins Shiny and Darkened Today I choose the Browned-Coin I found lying on the ground in the Suburbs As though The weight to bear, too heavy for “Change” and embarrassment of such pride staking gatherings is none the more appreciated, with time consumption for calculating an hundredfold Looking at one shiny as though well-kept in safe places Preserved as rarity by cherished old matrons who sit amongst thirteen stars while liberating bands around heads, keep eyes gazing at skies over States-United on one side, making promises to turn new leafs for the integration of shiny Browned-Coins, as Reserves temporarily deter dissemination into the depreciating masses of darkened similitude Yet something one could slowly bank on So you see There is more than one value of a Browned-Coin and no matter how hard it may be to accept and appreciate their worth I unlike you have decided to keep both coins Shiny and Darkened Today I choose the Browned-Coin I found lying on the ground in the Hood as though no one would ever find value in such minute figures enough to pick them up and keep them in population Looking at one darkened and disproportioned as though irresponsibly cared and worn from circumstance. The waning of brighter rounded Political faces rejecting revisions in capital, engendering scores of self-disdain from beliefs that, words illegitimately placed over the head of a once New Republican will make sense enough to at least uphold the value of a browned coin assimilate the word tattooed on the back of his neck and will someday become truths held as self-evidence Yes, there is more than one value of a Browned-Coin but though there are over a billion altogether in circulation they insist on separately trying to fit the Bill, individually rendering them, as one percent So I unlike you have decided to keep both coins Shiny and Darkened I have collectively gathered that, since, one and one make two one day in one sense one cent will help one cent make good sense and that, since, one and one is two, cents, further from nonsense, but two cents closer to the ninety-eight more Browned faces needed to gather one-hundred Browned-Political Figures together to create One Bill I unlike you have decided to keep both coins Shiny and Darkened Now since politicians don’t even make sense to politicians and the number of cents needed for Browned-Coins to appreciate their worth is only accepted when multiplied by higher values and divided amongst Political faces too high for Browned-Coins to reach to, “exact change,” abuse the worth of Browned-Coins in numbers like corn plucked in markets from the stock, and have collected enough cents to make sense of the nonsense perpetuated by higher numbers who count on creating Bills Mint to Remove scores of Browned-Coins from current-seas, I have tasked myself with a task of the highest of difficulties I write to keep Browned-Coins in population Because I too have sometimes walked by and seen the two Browned-Coins on the ground, the one Shiny and the one Darkened and in a prideful vain thought that even the voices in my head muffled, for an instance, I became prejudice against my own color when the questions were aroused, Do you really want to pick those up? You don’t know where they came from or what they could be carrying! Do you really want to be seen gathering the likes of those? Are they really worth it? And it’s, around that time that I shake my head to rattle “Change,” in mind thinking I once was of two Browned-Cents found lying on the grounds of both places the Suburbs and the Hood, and have been the both, shiny and Darkened, and know what it is to feel as though one will never amount to enough, so I do know how long it takes for two browned coins to accumulate Cents enough to appreciate worth But there is more than one value of a Browned-Coin And until every Browned-Coin realizes that, unless we are all counted together as a whole, we will never truly be valued as more than one percent So since two Browned-Cents is better than No sense at all I unlike you have decided to keep both coins the Shiny and the Darkened
