Parsimonious. Frugal. A miser
After this, no-one will be richer
But words might make us wiser...
Chips. Gravy. Bananas. Beans
Potatoes. Fish. Milk. Lolly.
If you have the biscuit - you have the means
Nicker. Coin. Lucre. Notes
Bones. Tender. Funds. Swag
Guineas. Florins. Tanners. Groats
Make them settle any bet
Start from scratch like poor Donald Trump
And you might just make a president yet
Gold. Silver. Nugget. Treasure
Shrapnel. Pieces. Nickels. Dimes.
A wad or a wedge might give you pleasure
Plaster. Paper. Stash.
A pile or a pot is what you want
When it comes to ready cash
Budgie. Tiger. Pony
Chicken feed is cheap indeed
And counterfeit is phony
Motza. Yennaps. Zak
Dinero. Ducats. Doubloons. Spondoolies
Lend it - I might pay you back
Quids. Smackers. Loonies
LSD. A 'k'. A 'g'.
A 'p'. A 'c'. And 'Toonies'
Tony Benns and Aryton Sennas
Winston's proudly coming to our fivers;
Jane Austen will grace our tenners
"It makes the world go round," they say;
Alas I fear it's true
I've little money, but plenty of words
So this poem will have to do.
