One Man’s (Trash) Treasure

Prompt: gizmo, champion, parrot

Husband enjoys thrift store shopping

Easily thrilled by most useless finds.

He’s a contradiction…not a frivolous

Spender…squeezes every dollar, dime.

I say, “whatever makes you happy”.

Today he’s all smiles, found odd gizmo

Like a bottle opener: parrot, wearing ball

Cap backwards—‘Champion’, it reads.

Affectionately, I pat his cheek… “One

Guy’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
