Free stuff!

free lemons

There is a magic phrase that can attract

Crowds in the very blink of an eye

It is an oft-demonstrated, time-tested fact

That no one can resist its lure under the sky-

“Free stuff” is what I’m talking about

It is highly valuable  because it is free

Most people grab a freebie without any doubt

Irrespective of its actual value or utility…

The shrewd businessman has figured this out

And drops the word “free” in places strategic

Adding freebies to things you can do without

So you rush to buy them, influenced by the “free” magic.

The ice-cream maker gathering dust in a corner

Bought because sugar cones were offered free 

Did not find a use for it through summer

(The sugar cones, though, were a different story!)


Everything free too comes at a price

No truly free lunches are ever found

To recognize the hidden cost is wise

Will save you some disappointment around!
