Chicken Feed Dollar-Builder Swag
The small change some call “chicken feed”
in time becomes Big Money;
When saved, you’ll find it can indeed
Make rainy days turn sunny!
DON’T spend all that “chicken feed”...
Save some of yours, inside;
Then plant with use, like garden seed,
And watch it grow—with pride!
