Antiques Road Show-Day 25-A Poem A Day

My husband likes to watch television’s Antiques Road Show

Where regular folks take things from home and off they go

To have the picture from Aunt Nettie appraised and explained

In hopes they will hear of great value gained

You see lunch kits from the 60’s worth one hundred times four

Which makes you think-when I was kid we shoulda bought more

And carted the stuff around from life’s place to place

While bemoaning that the flotsam was taking up space

Until you decide that it’s time to downsize 

And you donate them to Goodwill.  None too wise!
