ERRANDS IN BLACK FRIDAY
The computer like all the rest,
Flashed specials that retailers thought best…
A bewitching brew
Tailored to you,
Regardless of what they suggest.
Lines in the store today
Moved quickly out-of-the-way…
Except one cashier
She’d earn her bonus today.
Of course moving to a new line,
Made the log jammed one work out fine…
You wish you’d stayed
It was overplayed,
In this one you’re stuck this time.
But a baby in front, in a carriage–
I hope the fruit of marriage…
Smiled at me
And my soliloquy,
Such a little one don’t disparage!
