The Wishing Well Spit My Penny Out

Gasp!!!

The Wishing Well spit my penny out!
It said I already have a lot,
It said that I should appreciate what I have,
It said that being content is something I ought.

The Wishing Well spit my pennny out!
It said it had granted me enough wishes,
It said I'd been coming enough times recently,
And if I came more, it'd kill my poor fishes!!!

The Wishing Well spit my penny out!!!
It said that I was a spoiled brat.
That I had lots of stuff,
And to give me any more would be bad!!!

The Wishing Well spit my penny out!!!
It said it'd conjure up a guilotine.
I said that I was jealous of a friend,
It said that jealousy is the cousin of greed!!!

Gasp!!!

The End
