“Poor in money, but not in spirit,” he says

“What’s the value of that, sir?” I ask,

“What’s the value of  my soul?” I insist.

Twice forty plus one and for the first time, perhaps ever,

he doesn’t know what to say.

Oh, I can leave them speechless, I know

Just give me a chance-

Maybe that’s the value of my wealthy soul.

  1. So leaving some kind of impact on the world is the worth of a soul perhaps?
