Seven day wonder

I put my soul on eBay
auctioned from a pound
no reserve
new, unused

There was some interest
picked up
by the papers
and a man in a dark coat came

asked me

whether I’d like a cash offer
and sell straight away

I decided it wouldn’t
be fair to
other bidders
or even a good idea
got to protect my ratings
after all
where we be without ratings
so I decline the dark coated one

In the end it didn’t sell
no buyers
probably a good thing
It might come in handy one day
in the mean time
I can leave it at home
so that it doesn’t get damaged
in the rain.
