Market Day for the Poetry Stretch

[I knew what I wanted to write as soon as I saw the photo-prompt at this week's Monday Poetry Stretch. Click over there to see the inspiring picture.]



Market Day


I traded the ram for a lamb.
Next I traded the lamb for a ham.
Then my envy was stirred
when I swear that I heard
the yam say, "I yam what I yam."
