Sheer Shopping Madness



You're off and running once again The day has hardly begun The electronics store, the big box stores Remember when shopping was fun? You're out of breath thinking about it Heart's pumping a mile a minute You try to check out your harried brain But you can't find anything in it! So there you go, you're on your way Your mind is all a-flutter Careful now, watch where you're going You almost stepped in the gutter! Your eyes are glazed and tearing up With a look that's totally blank Sure hope your purchases are covered With enough dough in the bank! Your tiny brain is filled to the top With a myriad of important thoughts Then finally the shopping is over And every present is bought! All shopped out so now you plop In your comfortable easy chair The madness is finally behind you As your snoring fills the air! © Jack Ellison 2012

    Snoring with dreams of a job well done! The craziness is too much for me to get out into anymore. LOL

    I wish I could say that, Jack. My shopping is not done until this weekend! But you are done I see. Now you can sit back and relax - in your easy chair with a cup of coffee :) For those of us that take longer than others, there is no telling when we will be done. We will never get it done. There is always something to buy. There is always someone to think of. Anyway, we may get it done. Have to. Love ya, Toquyen
