''Credit Store''

I have to make my living on my friends My enemies contribute not at all Therefore I cannot give,or profit ends And then my buissness will fall I gladly lend you of my goods I ask only that you pay I make a profit as I should For after all I work each and every day Now you would not want to work for naught So why do you expect that I should Contribute all the things that I have bought Sometimes I think you do not wish me good Now there are many stores that sell for less Most any merchandise that I keep Yet when your in financial distress My goods it seems are very cheap But on the day when you have cash It seems my prices are always too high For to the superstore you dash It makes me want to sit right down and cry For my Grandfather's Store;

In the long run, people lose out, and the prices remain the same for less. You deserve CREDIT for such a nice poem!

Jai, so true, the more I have at hand, the higher the prices seem to be that week. It's all a conspiracy. LOL... Awesome poem. LINDA
