20 bucks.

20 bucks can buy,
starbucks for a week....
or a package of the blush you wear,
to paint upon your cheeks.

20 bucks can buy
a couple bags of food,
or a dvd, or headbands,
depending on your mood....

20 bucks can put a little bit
of gas in your tank,
but clearly i know where it's NOT going,
and that's in the bank....

20 bucks isn't much,
to anyone outside,
but i tell you it's a whole lot,
when it's coming from a lie....

There seems like an entire story is hidden within that last line. I quite enjoyed it. It packs a powerful punch.
