Pay As You Go

Pay a toll, a fee

Paper meets metal, metal meets paper

passing through exchanges, I agree

to pay the bearer the sum of more paper.


The nest is made, paper thin

The castle of columns, stack and tumble

splash in the sea of coins, the paper

carries the weight of existence.


£5.99p, where did the penny drop?

To join the pile and gather in a box with two holes,

a slit to just fit, a hole to ensure

that plenty of money can exit.


As the last penny rattles

the final demand, the rate has gone up

try to find more, so tight it squeezes

the last drop in the ocean of more.
