I dressed up my worth

I dressed up my worth in diamonds and pearls

satin and lace.

I put it gently on a platinum plate

polished to perfection.

I served it to you and bowed out gracefully

You marched in, lips pursed

one look and sour spreads across your face

With your bony fingers, you inspect

scrutinize every aspect

You dull the diamonds

Shatter the pearls
