~ Garage Sale ~

I thought I'd have a garage sale
I must've been out of mind
I clearly stated my hours
My sale would start at nine.

I was awakened in the morning
At 6:30 when my doorbell did ring
I was shocked and quite amazed
These people were asking about my things.

I told them my sale would start at nine
To please go away and come back then
I still had to set everything up
And at nine my sale would begin.

I closed the door and walked away
I was mumbling, "Are these people insane?
What part of my sign didn't they understand?
I don't think I can handle all this strain!"

The closer it got to nine o'clock
The more the cars lined up outside
Several cops were there directing traffic
And all I wanted to do was hide!

Thirty minutes still remained
Before the appointed time
That's when a cop rang my doorbell
"Can't you open up before nine?"

I quickly raised my garage door
I was nearly trampled to the ground
The throng of people coming in
I believe it was half the town!

The hours went by rather fast
Thinking back, it was quite funny
I managed to sell all my stuff
I made quite a bit of money!

But, I don't think I'll do this again
It's not worth the stress and strife
In the future I'll just donate my stuff
And maybe enrich someone's life!
