I Bought My Kids Crypto Last Christmas

BY KEN ASTOLE

 

I bought my kids crypto last Christmas

They got Ether and Bitcoin and that

I said “you may not be grateful just now

But quite soon it will pay for a flat”.

 

I bought my kids crypto last Christmas

All the chat rooms had said to be bold

“Leave the bikes and the toys to the future

Buy a gift that repays manifold”.

 

I bought my kids crypto last Christmas

Content at the seeds I had sowed

For their futures and maybe their pensions

On my screen in a long line of code.

 

I bought my kids crypto last Christmas

Now this year, as my family flocks.

They have sold it and all clubbed together.

With the proceeds they’re buying me socks.
