Welcome KMart shoppers blares through the air as a mosh pit of greedy Holiday buggers hurl themselves through the glass and aluminum doors—Obese bodies press (children jammed between white-bread). Trolls in strollers screech in pain and howls of Christ mask laughter. The shopper's feet bombard the glossy, line-oh-lea-ummm floors as the overwrought, over-privileged, truffle sniffers, poke through the hundred and fifty percent marked-up—mark-downs, for things they already own in triplicate. 

canned music
jiggle bells the room:
torn wrapping paper

I never doubt your ability to write Haibun. Unfortunately for this contest though I was trying to launch a new form, the Haibun FreeStyle, in which the poem can be anything but a haiku. And your wonderful entry with it's cynicism, and humour, looks to me to end with a haiku. As always though, love your work.

Debbie, you captured it perfectly, I just hate the commercial aspect of Christmas, the meaning is totally lost, you deserve a big fat 7 for this ~
