2018 Sonnet Nine

It looks like such a bargain, worth far more
Than its price tag implies, at least to me.
I see these sell for double in the store.
And such as this is just my cup of tea.

I think there’s just enough left on my card.
The last one nearly maxed out my account
Until I sold the one before at yard
Sale. I recovered half of the amount

I spent on the one before that, you know,
That one I thought was the be all to end
All of my cravings to sell out and go
Buy another. That one on which I spend

Every dime to cover interest payments.
The new one makes the old ones my laments.
