29 Nov


Come on in for our grand sale
The Holidays are near!
This weekend is your only chance
To get discounted cheer!

Lots of toys and gadgets that
Have been priced way too high
Are now on sale but we warn you:
There’s limited supply!

You’ll have to come down early and
Wait outside in the cold
There won’t be any rain checks or
Placing items on hold!

When we open, you will have
To rush through our front doors
Shoving past the other patrons
To get what is yours!

You’ll have to shuffle very quickly
Past the other buyers
Who are just as focused as you
On getting their desires!

Hopefully you’ll get there first
And beat them to your treasure
It’s every man and women for
Themselves and their own pleasure!

Sorry if you didn’t get
To that TV in time
But so far selfishness is still
Not considered a crime

Hopefully you can find something
Else we’ve got on sale
It would be quite a shame to wait
In line to no avail

But don’t worry, it’s still much fun
To come out and take part
In all the madness of buying
Cheap presents from the heart!

And we must say, you bring joy to
Us sellers on sale days
By doing your impression of
Some rats loose in a maze!

It’s entertaining to see you
With flyers in your hands
Trying hard to satisfy
Those material demands!

Because it isn’t Christmas ‘till
The gifts are bought and wrapped
Once you’re in the maze, you can’t
Get out, no sir, you’re trapped!

So pick up something that’s on sale
For that special someone
A mother, father, husband, wife,
Daughter, niece, nephew, son!

Buy it just to show you care
And save yourself some cash
All it’s going to cost you is
Your patience as you dash!

    Just think, the gifts you spent hours getting a great bargain for will probably be returned the day after Christmas. Super! 🙂

      Ha, great point. The gift that keeps on giving…hours spent waiting in line. 🙂

    Very entertaining and well written, but sadly, so true (the madness)~:)

      Thank you. All we can do is choose to not add to it. The only way to battle madness is with wisdom. 🙂
