Great Value

I’m not sure when 99 cents
became a super value.

I don’t think I’ve ever paid
99 cents for anything.

As I write this I can’t
believe there isn’t a symbol for “cents”.

That’s right, look at your keyboard,
no symbol for “cents”.

It’s ridiculous to advertise something
as a great value at 99 cents when it’s never,

99 cents.

Taxes prevent anything from actually
being 99 cents.

Dollar menus? Jokes.
Dollar stores? Bring two.

What’s a dollar anyway?
There’s a dollar in change somewhere,

in your house right now that you don’t
care about.

That’s right. A jar, a vase, a bank,
filled with more than a dollar.

Just sitting, on a forgotten basement
table. Gathering dust.

Great value.
