Let the Buyer Beware

Let the Buyer Beware

By Elton Camp 

These days, it is especially nice
To find an item at a bargain price

A half-price car Reginald got
But had to meet in a parking lot

“Cash only,” the seller did say
He’d mail the car title right away

An advertisement for rings Meg spied
Right there in the newspaper classified

She had to drive into the country rather far
To see jewelry from the trunk of his car

The prices were simply incredible, though
She bought several items and was on the go

A sixty-inch flat screen television set
For only fifty bucks, Joe was able to get

It was delivered in an old, beat-up truck
Joe simply couldn’t believe his luck

The stolen items the police confiscated
Thus, the “bargains” they much hated

When word of the buys the cops got
All said, “We had no idea it was hot!”

Suspicious circumstances they had to see
To such purchases should never agree
