Exactly As Advertised

OK, I knew it wasn’t really free,
not even for that trial subscription year,
and guessed that how it’d been posed to appear
would not match what got shipped. Hyperbole
is natural. I expected that to be
the cost of service from a profiteer.
I hold no grudge the pitch was insincere.
I seek no refund from a warranty.

No, your love’s exactly as advertised.
I knew what I was getting, every bit
of it from bad to worse, including tax.
It’s just, I can’t keep it. What it lacks
in fit it can’t fix up with personalized
alterations. Not only that, but it quit.
