Increasing Wealth

Day 25 prompt: wealth

 

At age five

A found penny

Even a dull one

Is a lucky fortune

 

At nine

Just one dollar

Made of actual paper

Is a prize in the pocket

 

At thirteen

A ten-dollar bill

Makes a decent advance

On an anticipated video game

 

At eighteen

Fifty bucks

Will cover a night out

Dinner, movie, gallon of gas

 

At twenty-six

A Benjamin

Puts a small dent

In the credit card bill

 

At thirty-seven

A thousand dollars

Pays for parts and labor

When the plumbers stop by

 

At forty-nine

Ten grand

Cash down, up front

Makes monthly payments manageable

 

At fifty-eight

A hundred thousand

In household income

Calls for careful budgeting

 

At seventy-four

A million dollars

Liquid but earning interest

Just might be enough to last

 

At eighty-seven

No amount of money

Adds up to the luxury

Of a great grandchild’s visit
