Rich Kid

Have you ever found a coin! What did you spend it on?
Rich Kid

I found a quarter on the sidewalk.
Boy, am I excited!
I’m feeling mighty, mighty rich
and I don’t plan to hide it.

I think I’ll buy a baseball.
Hmmmm. I don’t have quite enough.
Instead I’ll buy a rag doll.
Boy, this shopping stuff is tough.

Okay, I’ll buy a pizza.
No, I’m still a little shy.
How ’bout a bag of onion rings?
Well, it was worth a try.

I’ve searched for half the day now
for one thing I can afford,
and now I have to tell you
that I’m growing rather bored.

I guess I’ll buy some gumballs
so that I can finally end it.
It’s amazing how long a quarter lasts
when you can’t afford to spend it.

Optimism

1. The kid in this poem doesn’t find it easy to spend their quarter as it’s not enough for a lot of the things they’d like to buy. But they still end up with something very valuable. What do you think it is?
