I don't know how jade got such a bad reputation,
But all and all I think that shade of green suits me just fine.
Rough around the edges, but give me another failed indulgence,
And I'll have Chinese Emperors rise from the grave to
pluck that polished stone and stick it on their throne.
Nowadays, there aren't many options besides Jade.
It's either that or cubic zirconia.
And I might be beguilingly pathetic,
like a hot girl who wears orthopedic sandals,
But I'm not cheap. I'll take the real thing.
