ERRANDS ON BLACK FRODAY

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

Painfully clear

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!

LONG WEEKEND CLUES

LONG WEEKEND CLUES

I’m sure this isn’t news,

Things run out when used…

Coffee machines “oughter”

Have more than hot water,

But what’s a guy to do?

Parking lots empty fast,

As if a spell were cast…

And folks calling in

Can’t find anyone,

Business time’s nearly past.

Thanksgiving in the U.S.,

This Thursday doesn’t impress…

Retailers waiting

For Friday’s sale baiting

And American spending largess!

For those of Christian faith we eat,

Remembering our Savior’s complete…

Salvation for them

Survived till the Spring

And learned how to gather to eat.

-We praise the Lord God above,

Who suffered through Jesus in Love,

fOR ALL hIS BLESSING

(pLEASE PASS THE DRESSING?),

The taste of his mercies are sweet.

HOLIDAY HAIKU

HOLIDAY HAIKU

Temperature jumps,

“Cold season” drips and sneezes…

Economic boosts!

Thanksgiving over,

Turkey soup with lots of fat…

Should have known better!

Black Friday turned week,

Jingle makers sing their songs…

Santa’s tandom sleigh!

Sun shines on our tree,

Ads run for all charities…

God’s Gift…is coming!

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS…!

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS…!

 

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.

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS EARLY

BLACK FRIDAY BEGINS EARLY!!!!

 

Black Friday’s the time to make

Money for survival’s sake…

But many have opened

Late Thursday hoping

To shoppers’ attention retake.

BLACK FRIDAY

BLACK FRIDAY

 

Black Friday is black

Because there are no lack…

Of shoppers with money

Making eyes moist and runny,

Of those who would have investments pay them back!
