12.            COINING

When chocolate wins the pocket and pouch
to claim impressions of worthiness,
while Rand is covered in glories gold
and a sizable impression of sturdiness.

Weighted by the call of status
with the value of one banana,
as a flavoured chocolate dream
short the taste that once was.

Born new and baked in sweat
we pay them with the rainbow,
pack it safely for quality
and trade for Dollar and Pound.
