Dime in Town

smaller than a nickel

A really round dime,

Rolled down a curved road,
“Everyone listen to me!
I might be real small, I might be real little,
But no coin is stronger you’ll see!”
Nickel looked up,
nickel cartoon
And laughed a loud laugh,
And stated to dime with great glee,
“You’re not really shiny,
You’re terribly tiny,
You’re small like a dog-itching flea…”

“I might be quite small,
I might be quite thin,
That info is totally true,
But you’re worth a 5,
And I count to 10,
I’m double the value of you!”

(even though the dime is smaller than a nickel,
it still has a greater value!)
