The cycle of life is pretty cheap

My son was very excited that a quarter I gave him was worth twenty five cents
Twenty five cents
Twenty five cents!
He repeated it a few times
With varying levels of enthusiasm
But always with enthusiasm and
Not any less than he has shown when told
How many cents it took to buy a muffin or
The car or
Whatever else he asks about
It was his quarter
A quarter he later deposited in his bank
Where I can later find it
When I need one or two or
For a parking meter or
A shopping cart at the grocery store
Later I pay him back and
He is excited
Twenty five cents
Twenty five cents!
