"I woke from a fool's dream..."

by C. S. Lewis

I woke from a fool's dream, to find all spent
Except one little sixpence, worn and bent.
The same day, in the nick of time, I found
The market where my sixpence buys a pound.
Sirs, tell me was the bargain good or bad?
The price was cheap. The price was all I had.
