Clockwork people scuttle around the shop.
They are my creations, but also friends.
Never for sale, barter, or private swap,
To keep them running, I need odds and ends.
Over there is Henry who likes to dust,
which is nice because I collect old things.
I lost Wilberforce to his wanderlust,
but he sends me trinkets and toys on strings.
Other things are available for sale.
Browse around, plenty of things in hiding.
I might even have a stuffed Minke whale.
My need for things is never subsiding.
Payment here is easy, all cogs and wheels,
bits and bobs, will have me heads over heels.
