Garage sale

I once had some poems to unveil
So I  decided to have a garage sale
so I put up a sign
to all those inclined
to peruse my poems in  detail

But rain fell pitta  patter
and some people  did scatter
to shelter from the rain
but many remained to purchase dizains
and sonnets were served on a platter

When the weather had cleared
several  people came there
to buy my acrostics and rhymes
with Mcwhirtles on sale for a dime
while rispettos  were sold by the pair
