Pocket Money


Can I pay you later?


I carry coins and careworn notes
When I’m feeling free and rash
I join the card-swipe purchasers
Who no longer live with cash

I buy my stuff and pay my way
Assured of actions more secure
No need to input password keys
Or open gateways at the store

It may seem to you quite crazy
You may laugh and find me funny
To not pretend how well endowed
Without the cosy feel of money

Beware when buying ‘other’s’ stuff
Shelling out in your good name
Bereft of cash their empty purse
Will play the memory lapsing game

Unashamedly and most sincere
Claiming lack of cash pro-tem
When time is tight or evening light
They cannot find the ATM
