You’ve Got Jewels In You

 

 



You’ve got jewels in you

The purest of all the golds

Of all the precious stones

More treasures than can

Be ever imagined

In lifelong proportion

 


So do not let

To be shrunk

To an eternal cipher

Seen as a paltry

Or the malodorous junk

From the debris truck.
