That And A Nickel

10 May 2024

Mental Journey
A professional who seems pretty smart
Said my intellect was off the chart
My family asked, “how’s it affect you?
What does it allow you to do?”
I thought long, I thought hard,
About what things could start,
Then I remembered
What my father said to me
That and a nickel
Will buy you a cup of coffee.

Please note, this saying is from the
1930’s. When coffee cost a nickel.

Mental Journey

I am on a journey of the mind. Contemplating the universe on every scale, and doing a complete introspective exploration. I may never be a literary academic, but I share my humble thoughts in hope that they may inspire others.
