Valentine’s Series: Day 12: Cheaper By the Dozen

Dear Pearl,

Cheaper by the dozen,
They say,

“Don’t put your heart on the line
You gotta realise.”

You can’t take only one
That thing will never satisfy.

Cheaper by the dozen
They say

You need more tastes
Don’t deny your heart

Try eleven more,

One taste is simply
Not enough

That school of thought is dead
My friend, please revise.

But you are my dozen
My high-rise

The gnawing song on my heart
The reprise.

They think it’s the cost
They can’t handle priceless

They go for the dozen
And lose everything else.

You’re my one and only
They gotta recognise,

They never heard of faithful
Time they realise.


Love, Nev.
