Listening Ear

A truth unveiled upon a listening ear

Was considered and kept in mind

Held it tight so as not to lose it

Like a gemstone one of a kind

Polished it enhancing it's value

Ensured it out of respect

Had it secured in a gold setting

And wore it around the neck

Unlike the ear of a deaf man

Although eyes to see it shine

Did not hear of it's value

And sold it for a lousy dime

Yet even the ear of a dumb man

And witless of his thought

Gripped it tightly in his hands

And said, "Hey Look what I've Got"!

The End
