Kerri Shying R # 412 - Pricks


collapse around me    dollar world
I was born into   tuppence 
ha’penny      came the day

the Rural Bank  they took my copper pennies
with their swoop of kangaroo

each a palm load
for a baby hand

my pocket money  gave me back
this one cool twenty cent

platypus the barb in your feet
poison    is that when it began


  1. I felt v ripped off swapping nice big pennies for one cent pieces
    in come the dollars, in come the cents

    ...out go the pounds, shillings and the pence

    on the fourteenth of February, 1966!
