The Products Get Smaller and Smaller

The Products Get Smaller and Smaller

By Elton Camp

Every time that we go to the store
Containers hold less than before

This is only a hidden price increase
A practice that truly needs to cease

For it will hurt all in coming days
When there’s no cost of living raise

Sometimes the shape will change
Slyly cutting contents to arrange

A bubble at the bottom does the same
This type dirty trick is a rotten shame

Maybe the box is the same size still
But the contents woefully fail to fill

This practice we shouldn’t tolerate
May a sales loss be the cheater’s fate
