If you could give me your thoughts on this, I would appreciate it. It is for a contest. The subject matter is money and this is the scenerio I thought of.
Nickels and Dimes
Tattered and bristled with dirt.
He keeps them in his breast pocket.
Among the crumbs and grease, his treasure lies.
With a gleam in his brown eyes,
The wild haired old man holds them in dingy hands and shrieks
“My fortune is nearly here!’
An unshaven beard shows a smile,
Passer-by’s shuffle on the street, among the November frost.
Disgust shows underneath the surface.
Cringing to a far away corner,
Strangers scurry from the bum who speaks of his fortunes of nickels and dimes.
