Penny Panhandler

i'm carrying this penny I found on the ground 

around in my pocket because it's bound

to give me luck, or at least some hope

that if I run into a problem, I'll be able to cope

cause lately I've been feeling down

it's just the same old people in this same little town

I need to runaway, or at least have some change

and a penny's a good start to my panhandling stage.

Stay Put

It's rough out here. No jobs of any worth except in pennies available. Notice how statiticians seldom say what kind of jobs are coming back. As a panhandler, a will work for food sign stage, you could earn about two hundred dollars a day. Sounds like a plan. I'm from a small town in Michigan and lived in Detroit forever, then moved back to a small town. I found that the people were good and bad, warm and cold. Good luck, but wait a while, it will get "better" economically eventually. ~allets~

You must understand exactly what I'm talking about; I'm also from a small town in Michigan! But thank you for the advice, I've slowly but surely been learning to love the "Mitten State" more and more as I've grown older. Smile
