The Fifty-Spot


On this day in nineteen ninety-seven
New notes were introduced embedded
With better watermarks and metal lines
By The Treasury Department's minds

An effort to cut down on the counterfeit trend
Which grew after copiers were made to blend
And now the line's been extended to hundreds and twenties
Meaning counterfeiting will soon be entirely circumvented

- Tristram
