44​/​156 [you can't buy anything worth having]

by Lux Lisbon

subscriber exclusive


She said "love ain’t for sale" - as she picked out a ring
As an affectation, not stopping to think
And I didn’t want to crow or to alter the mood
But you couldn’t blame me if I were to conclude
That this sham decoration - this bauble of bling
Came loaded to plunder – and heavy with strings
Like the words in a book that she never could write
They toppled her tongue in their doltish delight

"You can buy, so many things, but you can't buy anything worth having"
