Don’t You Know You’re Worth It? | Short Poem No. 67

Oh my baby, don’t you know you’re worth it?
All the money in the world can’t buy you,
or the richest of men come and work it,
or the smartest scholars, with words so true.
You said “No!” to the sweet poets’ romance
and the lawyer with the strong arguments.
Doctors couldn’t even prescribe a chance
and the athletes quickly became past tense.

But this young, poor boy won you attention
with his simple and warm, true affection.
