989-990. Investigative native

There is a young sleuth from New Guinea,
Undernourished and terribly skinny.
He's shaped like a rail
And his weight it does fail
To come up to a buck and a penny.

Though sometimes he's not law-abiding
(Which makes the police give him chiding),
With his slender physique
It is easy to sneak --
He can use any phone pole for hiding!

In baseball, money is sometimes used to describe a low batting average.  For example, "He's only hitting a buck seventy five" means his average is .175, so this guy weighs under 101.
