Black Friday

28 Nov

Thanks but no thanks

Black Friday is here

Be sure to keep your receipt

because you cannot return without it

you will be stuck in a line to empty shelves

with nothing to show but your love

Hell bent for bargains

we follow the crowd straight over the cliff

clutching our wide screen tv with glee

as we fall into the sea

Black Friday is a time of total darkness

groping for happiness where there is no life

only an unsatisfied lust for things

it is not a time for celebration

but a time of willful ignorance

playing out the tinsel game

for one more year
