Gold does not buy everything,

COINS

A Man’s Hobby

A rare old coin
is a happy find;
Each one added
helps content the mind.

Some like copper
nickel, silver, and gold;
I’ll go for anything
that’s valuable and old.

Our wives think we are nuts,
and sort of dry and lazy;
The security we offer
might even seem quite crazy.

They think each time we invest
a dollar or maybe ten;
Their wardrobe should be extended
and really — to no end.

The poor girls don’t realize,
the dough we did save;
Until they plant us
deep down in our grave.

And only then, after planted,
they will thank us.
For the money we saved,
Our effort soon forgotten
for the fine road we have paved.
