The sad plight of our penny! by ranu

Coins of the Canadian dollar

It has finally been decided the penny has overstayed its welcome.It costs too much to keep them in circulation.If you want a dollar you will need a hundred pennies.Too much work for little or no gain.If you carry them in your pocket,the weight will create a hole in your pocket. It has no place in your wallet,your bag will be too heavy. Result,chuck them out of your bag.

I am writing about our Canadian penny.I wonder if the penny could speak,what will it say?I used to watch on T.V ‘A penny saved is a penny earned.’ They will have to come up with something new and exciting.

I was told about the penny’s demise by a store clerk. You can imagine,how I get my news! Now I have this daunting task of finding a home for my pennies in my ‘Piggy Bank.’  Some people have started a new business,they are using as a pendant and selling them.

Perhaps I will send them to people who are using them as a pendant.There is a problem,due to their weight,they cannot be shipped,it will cost too much. Do I want to do this,on second thoughts,not really.

I am a penny,

there are so many

no one will want me,

isn’t it funny.

This concludes my thoughts about our poor,dear penny!

(Shaphalata)   Success by Rabindranath Tagore

There are times when I wonder,    deprived of work

my time is wasted morning and afternoon,in fact the whole day.

No my lord it is not wasted,all those moments___

You have accepted them

O my God. My mind is

enveloped with thoughts of your creation

you have awakened the seeds by letting them sprout,

you have helped the flower to bloom.

You have transformed the flower into juicy fruit,

I am sleepy tired and lying lazily in bed

thought all my work is left undone.

I woke up in the morning opened my eyes;

saw, nature was ready to greet me with all its splendour.
