ECONOMY DUO

ECONOMY DUO

A “sixty-eight” set thermostat,

Limited income is at…

Start a wood fire

And people perspire

But the rest of the house freezes stat.

In the mountains, frozen pipes,

Summer home owners find real gripes…

Put antifreeze

In the lines please,

We need to secure these respites!

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.
