So, What is the value of poetry?
And why would I pay to hear a bird sing?
What is the cost of a Maserati?
A cup, a clock, or just any old thing?
How much are they selling clouds for these days?
I hear the blue sky is skyrocketing.
Investing in a poem doesn't pay,
I'd go into stocks and bonds or something.
While your looking for something else to buy,
Poems are so very easily missed.
"This guy's just another salesman", you sigh.
"He's just trying to get me to enlist."
Yes, poems are life, so easily missed.
And I'm Colonel Bank waiting to be kissed.
