be it shares or commodities
whatever they can buy & sell
& instantly make a profit
they'll instantly act on it!
Hello Kitty is a purrr-a-fact fit
even if the gain is a tiny-weey bit!
for such an incredible deed,
ten percent of the population were on this beat
relentlessly camping, queuing & standing on their feet!
so that they can bid, beat or be beaten
as long as they'd be the first to get it
before the shop floors were open for the bid!
there were side shows & sidekicks
the thoughtfuls selling drinks & tid-bits!
teenagers raking through the queues
for making a meager profit
still, it is pocket-money for keeps!
though beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,
if the non-furry toy is really that cute
& their love for this non-cuddly-toy is deep, so be it
but at 4.95 dollars a piece
if this kitty is considered as cheap
then their time is surely, cheaper than cheap
but if the profit is twenty dollars a piece
or even up to fifty dollars a piece
then their love for money is deeper than deep
if selling these kits is a profit-making deed
will selling the next programming tool kit
be their next best click?
this willl depend on their love for knowledge is deep
or the thought of programming makes them creep
even if their love for money is deeper than deep!
