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!
