Son-net

My child you may posess a fine physique
but fortunes aren't made with tight derrieres,
what defines one most is that certain air.
Learn to gaze intensely and not to speak;
it is sacrosanct to preserve mystique.
Be dangerous, with a devil-may-care,
toss off places, phrases and tidbits rare;
only then can you hobnob the elite.

Always be sure to keep some in reserve,
never settle for less than you deserve.
Ignore the trifles of morals or sins,
remember this is what keeps one in gin.
Money, as exchange, is but mere device;
Love, as in tennis, is nought worth its price.
