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.

      Really ! you made a whole nickel (I think that's 10cents isn't it ?)

      I think I've given my entire life history and not made that much !!

      You made a nickel, nicomp,

      May the gods be praised.

      Tomorrow - perhaps a dime,

      And the bar will then be raised.

      Loved your poetry.

      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.
