On Money

By Marc Leavitt of Marc Leavitt's Blog

I used to pay my bills by check,
I wrote a bushel, and a peck.
To purchase stuff, I had a stash
Of dirty coins and paper cash.

But PCs make cash obsolete,
Direct deposit can’t be beat!
I never write a check today,
It’s all on automatic pay.

And shopping with a debit card,
Is always easy, never hard.
It shows me where my money goes,
Saves time, and keeps me on my toes.

Some coin and paper money’s fine,
But I prefer my cash on line.

You write very good poetry and observations of monetary life today compared with just a few decades ago.

Now, how to invest it is another matter, so please write one about the low interest and where to put it!

How fun!
