The almighty dollar

Remember, once upon a time,
Something that's part of ancient lore,
Of shopping at the "five and dime?"
Today, you shop the dollar store.

A dollar, just one hundred cents;
Phone calls were ten times a penny,
And gas was only thirty cents,
When two dollars' worth was plenty.

But that was when a buck had power;
Its moxie went a long, long way.
Now, you earn more every hour;
What does it buy you now - today?
