A Penny Well Spent

Form: Constellation Sonnet

To hold a penny inside your hand
Securely keep it for your own desire
To spend it in the way that you have planned
Let that coin your own choice freely inspire
Then you’ll know richness none can understand
To hold a penny inside your hand
So it dictates your want to thus conspire
Against your dreams with its ideas too grand
Extinguishing your heart of its deep fire
And so shall poverty reign in command
For it’s not the power of money spent
That brings the soul to know the purest wealth
For the soul don’t care where your money went
When capitalist greed brings the soul ill health
