spare change by shere-akrhan

I’m building a puzzle
Of the Nobel Peaces, heirs
They’re in a huddle
Presenting their dreams to a World Fair
To lift feet from a puddle
Giving Kids a stuffed grizzly bear
For something to cuddle
All the heart, the art, the Earth
But our arms don’t fit around
The Globe
For that power
I’d throw away thousands of pounds
Until then I take snapshots
For memories it is worth
Sony, Nikon, Canon, Olympus
The Camera is the mod
Between me and the view
And I want gold, silver or even bronze
From the olymPICS
But that’s a another thing
I don’t really need
I’d give you a dollar bill
For your coins
Copper, nickel, dime, quarter
Cause I want to change this world

I have fallen and grown taller
Saved so much, but more thoughts
Moment of silence, Pause
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
I’m going to change the world

Thoughts are
Too large
And minds are
Battles with two swords
Between the light and dark
Tale and truth
And they are fragile
Piggy banks
When the light switches
Get flipped
Off the shelf I fall
As I was tripped
Running down a hall
Cracked for too long, too straight, too far
A red tip on a brick wall
The bills ignite
And I drop my Crystal Ball
The explosion of the large
Into pieces on busy streets
Makes me re – think in small
From the ashes they are
Un – harmed
Simple
The most beautiful thing I ever saw

I have fallen and grown taller
Saved so much, but more thoughts
Moment of silence, Pause
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
I’m going to change the world

Last year I saw Panda Man
Behind the window pane
By the lack of Towers
I met him
He was asking for a hand
A FDR, Washington, Lincoln, a Jefferson
I shook his paw
And thought
What does he do if it rains?
Does NYC parent him?
All I know, I’ll keep being who I am
Paying dues
Doing what I do
Clapping in my seat
Moving my feet to the beat
What I believe
Asking for her hand at the ball
Sharing my mind and thoughts
What I believe in, True
I’m not scared of the False
And I will change the World
Before the dark
I just need the coins to use
The phone booth near the park
To make the call

I have fallen and grown taller
Saved so much, but more thoughts
Moment of silence, Pause
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
I’m going to change the world

I have fallen and grown taller
Saved so much, but more thoughts
Moment of silence, Pause
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
Do you have coins for this dollar?
I want to change the world
I’m going to change the world
I’m going to change the world
