DAY 28: BLACK FRIDAY BLUES

SHOPPING CART - back off (boxing gloves-horn)
 
 
And now for the LEAST thankful day of the year…
 

Twas the day after Thanksgiving when all through the land

Not a creature was resting, child woman or man

With tummies still bloated from yesterday’s feast

They rose before dawn to tackle the beast

 

Some camped out on sidewalks instead of their beds

While “get-one-free” iPads danced in their heads

Moms in their spandex and dads in their sweats

Would fight to the death for the best bargains yet!

 

When finally the doors were flung open wide

To let the great horde of shoppers inside

They dashed and they darted, zigged and they zagged

To trample the rest, their treasures to bag

 

Yet what to their wondering eyes should appear

But “SORRY WE’RE SOLD OUT” signs far and near

They reeled back in horror to hear the clerk say,

“Our Black Friday sale started…yesterday!”
