Today I Made a Nickel

.05 dollars feels like a lot more than a nickel, right?

Ode to eBay

Today I made a nickel,
an eBay capsule worked.
I picked a common item,
I hoped that riches lurked.

I wrote about a product
that everyone would need.
I cared not for the sellers,
my motivation: greed.

Today I made a nickel,
somebody paid the price.
The eyeballs came from somewhere,
my words, they do entice.

The clicks will earn me money
while I am outside playing.
It's almost passive income,
my mortgage I'm repaying.


Let's hope they don't run out of zeroes.
Let's hope they don't run out of zeroes.

The Saga Continues

Today I made a nickel,
my fortune doth increase.
My bank account trends upward.
I'm worth more than all of Greece.

More categories beckon:
eBay inventory's broad.
The sellers augment daily
and rarely commit fraud.

You too can join the action,
your time will be well spent.
Affiliate with eBay
to fund retirement.

You are definitely right. I need an 1885 Liberty V Nickel. Just as soon as I make 34,000 nickels. I can see from your poems you need 33,998 more. Good luck in your endeavors.

You made a nickel, nicomp,

May the gods be praised.

Tomorrow - perhaps a dime,

And the bar will then be raised.

Loved your poetry.

Lol peter. This is lifted my spirits. I have technical difficulties with eBay, so it was night to have a laugh. I wish I could write like this hubber!
