The Cherished

The most expensive produce

I thought a decade before

something precious

it was wonderful

glitters and gleams all through

the one thing I deemed most cheap

liquid simple found in plenty

no shine or no reflection

a colourless, odourless fluid

transparent and very useful

excelled in the aspect of utility alone

a decade later I find a difference

the costly one still remains so

whilst the no cost product

has gone up enormously

most so in value all over

to the point I deduce

it is the diamond that is held high

the plain water has overcome

rather overthrown the diamond

defying all expectations

scarcity mounts up

the paucity creates a demand

most cherished and dear it has become

most cherished
