ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ SUBTRACT




Olive's in a pickle
She needs a dime or nickel
Something to subtract
from a piggy always packed

Alas today she's finding nuttin'
Just one lonely orange button.

This is a great take on subtract, and interestingly enough, poor Ginger shares in the woes of many Americans right now...
