Coin Collection

Coin Collection

Still banking on a large hoard

Biggest box, could sibling afford?

What treasure had he financed?

My mind valued as my eyes glanced

Boxed for presentation

Shedding layers like an onion

Gift size depreciates

Unwrapping with no abate

Like a Russian doll strips to tease

Keep opening no guarantees

Each box decreases size is lost

Down to a matchbox count the cost

Inside the box and no longer mint

To coin a phrase I give you a hint

Bad penny returns, I give my thoughts

Small change toss, Heads and revenge sought
