My Two Cents

A Missive Accompanying My Donation to a Certain Political Party of Two Cents Having Been Asked to Attend a $2500 per Plate Dinner

by Steven McDougal

ENCLOSED, distinguished sirs, you will find two cents.
It's all I have left after paying the rents.
      The tax cuts were nice but they left me poorer
      Since the state and locals now ask for morer.
Hence the reason I can only give two cents.

But two cents should not be considered worthless.
At the current one percent bank interest
      It will promptly pay for its postage rate
      Sometime in, around, or about the date
Of AD two thousand three seventy six.
