Was driving home before one,

Black Friday had barely begun…

Wal-Mart’s lot seemed full

Of vehicles,

And a crowd to the entrance had clung.

Perhaps they were waiting for this,

Much-awaited shopping bliss…

With cops standing by

In the case of outcry,

Or if anything untoward was amiss!

I went on my way past one,

Black Friday by then had begun…

Folks out in the cold

Moving in when told,

It was time for their morning run.
