BETTER LATE THAN NEVER* (E-BAY)

His bid he learned to withdraw,

Before he lost it all…

Another “Unpaid”

Bill be laid,

In his record, to stick in his craw!

–J.E.C.

*…in “the nick of time!”

CUSTOMIZED COMPUTER SEARCH

CUSTOMIZED COMPUTER SEARCH

Coming back too many times,

Logic protocol divines…

Perhaps “we” should ask

If a certain task

Is what they had in mind.

If  a site visit repeater,

Perhaps time to take them deeper….

Find out what they’ll pay

To increase play,

While the angle of the pit goes deeper.

It was so with E-bay,

Enticing in numerous ways…

Ads everywhere

I’d look and stare,

Luring…reminding…PLEASE STAY!

JUST ONE MORE PACKAGE!

JUST ONE MORE PACKAGE…!

One more package

From E-bay…

Thus will he end

The unhealthy foray.

All the money

Now in trains….

Resting in his room in piles,

Certain;y had his attention

Giving him smiles.

Keeping the piles off the floor,

But for the time being

He won’t buy anymore.

BIDDING CLOSEOUT

BIDDING CLOSEOUT

He’s not yet out of E-bay,

But his items are fading away…

Many have slid

From overbid,

But winning causes over-pay.

It’s pared down to a few

Items the next day or two…

Then he stops

Or she calls the cops,

His bidding days are through.  🙂

E-BAY WRAP-UP

E-BAY WRAP-UP

Received the final RS-1,

Perhaps waiting ine more…

Have purchased favorite body shells

A collection to endure.

I’ve yet to do the wiring

The thing I’m in most need….

Should get that done so I can run

And put away the greed!

–Jonathan Caswell

ALL ABOARD–ALMOST!

ALL ABOARD–ALMOST!

Three coaches, five excursion cars,

N scale people can travel far…

Plus a few knocks

Of the junk box

And he’ll run excursion bazaars!

He got it mostly on E-bay,

For very good prices okay…

Enthusiasm fired

Still hasn’t wired

The layout to run today.

He got body shells for the taking,

New roster changes he;s making…

Favorite units appear

Not formerly here,

A logjam soon is breaking!

Excursion trains need a show,

Oh where did that carnival go?…

An N scale zoo

Just might do,

His triceratops even glows!

–Jonathan Caswell

E-BAY FINGER SLIP

E-BAY FINGER SLIP

A voice in his mind thundered,

“you bid one thousand five hundred…”

For charity,

Woe is me,

But relief—it came in considerably under!
