Passed Down With Interest

A precious penny for your thoughts, for five a good cigar. Prevailing wisdom up in smoke to regale the nearest star. Keep abreast of Smith and friends, but true friends we disdain. As eager birds beat frantic wings in sunrise search for gain. A moron's gold soon disappears, no noontime meal is free Roll every penny and they're yours, on that we all agree. Shopworn phrases from the past still speak to here and now. It's amazing still how money talks- that final, sacred cow.
