Funny Money by Michael Dugan


Simple Simon met a pieman

Going to the fair.

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Let me taste your ware.”

Said the pieman to Simple Simon,

“Show me first your penny.”

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Indeed, I have not any.

Pennies went out years ago,

Stop trying to be funny.

Just charge it to my credit card –

I’ve only plastic money.”
