Market Warrior

Market Warrior
the market place is always set up at dawn
a trade, an exchange or what one can pawn
early is the buyer seeking bargains and gifts
excited, determined to find the gems he can sift
sift out from the abundance
of the all to be shared
holding on to the skills
of knowing how all is compared
and then the warrior turns off
the element of speed
and enters the market
as a fair-trade buyer to heed
the gems that he finds
stand out from the rest
then with ease he departs
having conquered his quest
