Good buy or goodbye

As I eyed the one that I wanted to buy,
An eager salesman happened by.

"Hi," said I.

"An excellent choice," said he. "A very good buy!"

"How much?" I asked.

And he seemed offended by the question.

He looked as if he might cry.

And then, with a gleam in his eye,
he praised the device,
in its every detail and feature.

And I nodded politely.

But when, at last, he revealed the price,
"Goodbye," said I.

(It was far too high.)
