Don'T Play Me Cheap - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don't play me cheap.
I'm pure as gold.
You'll never know...
Until you hold me close.

Don't play me cheap.
Or let me go.
To quickly unload,
On a dirty dusty road.

I'm a jewel unpolished but a keeper.
I'm not just a coverup...
Or a rooky just with looks.

I'm a gem of lasting quality.
All you need to see I'll show...
The depth inside of me.

Don't play me cheap.
I'm pure as gold.
You'll never know...
Until you hold me close.

Don't play me cheap.
Or let me go.
To quickly unload,
On a dirty dusty road...
And get rolled over.

I am not someone to cry upon your shoulder.
Or wear some petty weakness on my sleeve.
My word is my bond and I don't deceive.
Whatever I tell you,
You can believe.
I'm not the kind to take from you and leave.
I pride the fact I've got some integrity.

My word is my bond and I don't deceive.
Whatever I tell you,
You can believe.
I'm not the kind to take from you and leave.
I pride the fact I've got some integrity.

Don't play me cheap.
I'm pure as gold.
You'll never know...
Until you hold me close.

My word is my bond and I don't deceive.
Whatever I tell you,
You can believe.
I'm not the kind to take from you and leave.
I pride the fact I've got some integrity.
