Penny for my thoughts?
You never asked me for a dime or a quarter.
Maybe my thoughts aren't worth just a penny.
How dare you underestimate my thoughts' worth.
They aren't worthy of a single one of your
Thoughts thinking of what mine could possibly be.
They have ceased to be about you
And have become worth something.
Something better than you ever would have been.
I don't mean to degrade you,
But you asked me for my thoughts.
Take back the penny,
I don't want anything more from you.
