LOVE AND MONEY, by            
First Line: I count my pounds as three times two
Last Line: Shall fly to safer cover!
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Love - Materialism

I count my pounds as three times two,
And five times one, my shillings;
Six pounds, five shillings for my Love,
To buy a coat with frillings.

But as she takes the light and air,
So will she take my money;
And all the thanks I'll get will be
A quiet — 'Kiss me, Honey'.

And so I will, at such a rate
That, long before it's over —
A deer pursued by fire and wind
Shall fly to safer cover!
