What's Under The Tree Should Be From Austin Macauley
There they go down the street
Even before they had anything to eat
During this tradition that has no admission
People have a wide-eyed appeal
Since this party is truly the real deal
When marchers march, dancers dance, and balloons fly knowing they are there to introduce one special guy.
It is Santa Claus of course using reindeers instead of a horse
But do not be afraid since this is a special day when we have enough room to say
The holidays are coming, and it is time to start the running,
Unless you were prepared when you visited last month’s book fair
It was at The Austin Macauley booth where there was proof
The spirit of giving can come alive in one sitting
When the book bought had the right hook instead of explaining how to cook
Sit by the fire and do not worry what’s in the National Enquirer.
Since true fiction does not hurt
Instead it is just the way an author flirts
Whether the setting is betting at the wedding
Or a damsel always in the press
A reader never has to confess when they enjoy hearing about the characters mess.
So, when you make that retail decision without getting anyone’s permission
It is the magic of the pages that makes it all right to spend your wages
So, invest in a published writing and stay away from those who are fighting.
Let the pages fly, enjoy a nice cry knowing what is on sale at Austin Macauley is always a good buy.
