The Auctioneer

A Rusted radiator and a leaking tap,

broken tiles on the floor

of this dilapidated flat.

Worn out curtains hang from a pole,

years of neglect

have taken their toll.

Paint is peeling off the wall

while a damp patch

is on the ceiling in the hall.

Heating has been turned off

for over a year,

this is one tough sell

for the auctioneer.

A family is squabbling over its worth,

this dingy flat

the place of their birth.
