Black Friday Dreaming

Talk about a Christmas miracle I tell you it was just amazing, The sale of the century and it set my charge card blazing. Why they were practically giving the stuff away I couldn’t just turn and leave, The prices were so Earth-shatteringly low it was impossible to believe. And no one seemed to be around and there was an oversupply of stock, No pushing or shoving anywhere, I was the only shopper on the block. The checkout lines were completely empty and I didn’t have to wait, And the gourmet coffee that the bagger gave me really tasted great. And then my alarm went off and I saw that it was three o’clock in the morning, I had to be ready to go by four or my sister would leave me without warning. Black Friday comes but once a year, she said, so be ready or be in trouble deep, But I preferred shopping in my dreams so I rolled over and went back to sleep.

    I take back what I said down here earlier. In the future I will avoid shopping the day BEFORE Black Friday because Thanksgiving is now the NEW Black Friday!

    I figured it must be a dream when there was no one else there. You made the right decision in the end!

    I'm with you, Tony. The super deals just aren't worth the stress and insanity. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Kim

    Well written poem, Tony. Of course it had to be a dream, eh? Might as well stay there until Black Friday is over.
