I am an only child
and there is no need for another
in America, Europe, Asia, Africa,
or any other place.
My eyelashes are worth millions,
and a piece of my skin would be worth billions.
My grades are fit for a museum,
and my report cards are solid gold.
I am King Tut and Sylvester Stallone
added together and multiplied
by a number so high,
it doesn’t even exist.
June is now considered
“the month of miracles”
because I was born that month.
If you were born the same year I was—1997—
you would be three times as fortunate
as if you won the lottery twice.
My face makes up two-thirds of the library
and four-fifths of the TV.
Every country begs for my presence
and when I come
they shower me with riches.
I’m definitely worth it,
and five billion times more!
I have so many talents,
not even the greatest math whiz
could count them all.
I know I’m the best,
and you know it, too,
even if you won’t admit it,
you know it is true!
