Country Auction

(so that nothing is lost)

by Cynthia Knisley

vintage-16726_1920

Five, six, or seven, who will go eight?

A bargain a minute – don’t hesitate!

Lot 142, who wants this stand?

With a pot and a plan it would really look grand.

A box lot up next, just look at this stuff!

Drill bits and pliers, a tin of old snuff.

Two nice saws sold as a pair

to the man in the corner on the needlepoint chair.

A really nice cabinet – see the French legs?

Sold! Fifty dollars!

Look! Two weathered kegs.

One has some damage, “as is” it is sold –

the pair for a hundred –  these beauties are old!

This must be the ugliest lamp I have seen.

It’s wild…unique…just for you, Mrs. Green.

A pair of white horses – a concrete garden set . . .

give $10, $20, $30, it’s the best value yet.

A rush-seat rocker – will someone give two?

It has a few holes, all you need is some glue.

 

When they were filled, He said to His disciples,

‘Gather up the leftover fragments,

so that nothing will be lost.’    John 6:12
