The saga continues,
You just won't give in.
So I'm writing another,
Because I want to win.

So you cut up my penny?
Who cares? Big deal!
I'll just find another,
'Cause that one won't heal.

Do you think it's fun,
Playing this game?
I'll take my turn,
And give this one a name.

This coin will be Sparkles,
Because it's so shiny.
If you don't like that,
Stop being whiney!

This penny's germ-free,
I boiled it too.
If you don't want to believe me,
Next time I'll give you two.

This penny is pretty,
The best you'll ever see.
The reason it's perfect:
You got it from me.

The war isn't over,
As much as you'd like.
You just can't beat me,
For I am Officer Mike!

Mike, First Chair French Horn in Wind Symphony, Facilities Lieutenant


I thought I'd be nice,
Sign only my name.
But you tried to brag,
Now I do the same.
Sparkles is still taped to the printed copy of this. And yes, I really did boil Sparkles in water.

Half-score less four years ago (2005, for normal people), a friend of mine (and crush at the time) found a penny on a field trip to Disney, and made a point to say "Hey look, I found a penny" every opportunity she could. This got a bit annoying, so naturally I attempted to belittle her great fortune using my literary wit. Thus began the great Penny Poem War. To this day, I do not have my original piece, nor any of her replies (though I assure you, mine were totally better), but I do have two pieces of my own with which I can reminisce. As per the request of :iconamaya-k-lilium: ages ago, I have finally gotten around to typing them up so that you may bask in the awesomeness that is my poetry. You're welcome.
