Boy With a Dime

There was this dream

Of going to Mars

Of going to the Moon

Of going to tomorrow

Not because it was easy

Because it was hard

But with just a dime

It took more than a dream

More than an equity mortgage

And dollars to donuts men in suits

It took vision and innocence

Innocence lost when they raised the price of

Ten cent candy

To two fifty-nine.
