Not for Sale (Poem)

He's Not For Sale!
You can't buy loyalty, they say,
I bought it though, the other day.
You cant buy friendships, tried and true.
Well just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid and on spot.
Brought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness, so all in all,
the purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single trusting heart,
that gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are
NOT FOR SALE
Buy a Jack Russell with a wagging tail!
