Making a Case

The iPhone 4 I bought today
Just set me back a buck.
It’s last year’s model, quite passé
And so the deal was struck.

I found out that it needs a case
So it won’t fall and break,
But I was really thrown off-base
When I heard – no mistake – 

The purple case I liked (with teal)
Was priced at fifty clams!
What started as a groovy deal
Soon wore the scent of scams.

They say that nothing comes for free
And that is not a lie,
For stores that make no profit
Are in very short supply.

    Hook, line and sinker, put on your blinker and head back out the door. I've not seen yet, a bargain bet that you win at the store.
