Penny Pinching

I’m frugal right down to the core

I frequently say ‘less is more’

But I will not deny

From now on I will buy

The best on the shelf for this chore


I reached for the cheapest they had

And now all the dishes look sad

They’re covered in scuzz

And it’s all because

I was saving some pennies… too bad

Good news!  Since the writing of this fine poetry, I’ve purchased the most expensive fancy-schmancy dish detergent I could find.  I believe the $4 was money well spent, as my jelly-jar-glass-ware is now gleaming.
