11/30: Knives For Sale

"Why on earth would you ever need a knife?”-- Concerned Younger Sister
“In case I need to stab someone. Duh.”-- Me.

This collection of knives
For sale to not the highest,
                But first
I want them gone. My wrist action
Is tired, I don’t fancy a quick garrotting
Any more.
They are sharp, clean, in good condition,
they should go to someone I know,
Who will use them well.

I’m neither as tough
Nor noble
As I thought.

So here, for  a reasonable-- I’m not
Asking much; pick them up or walk.
We’ve been having this conversation too long.

And either way
You’ll get them.
