The Quarter

One day there was a coin on the ground
on the baseball field, and a kid found the coin. 
He looked at it and noticed that it was a quarter. 
He put the quarter in sunlight and the reflection
of the sun was like the sun itself. 
He put water on it, and it glistened in the sun.
He flicked it and he got heads and won the bet
with his friend.  He won a new baseball card,
and it shined just as much as the quarter he found.
