Parsimonious Pete

Once upon a time down a lane so green and old

there lived Peter and his life of dust and mold

he never had a wife but he saved every penny

when it came time for friends, well Pete didn’t have any

a land owner he was with a long nose and chin

drab old clothes and face with out a grin

they said he was mean and very sanctimonious

but Peter was thrifty and just parsimonious

with a stove pipe hat and a corn cob pipe

he walked with a cane of an ivory type

stingy with the offering and when it came to the poor

no one ever ventured inside his blackened door

one day Peter died and they carried him away

his fortune was left behind and there it was to stay
