Twas the day after Thanksgiving
and all through the house
the aroma of turkey
attracted a mouse.
Leftovers were wrapped in the fridge with care
in hopes inspiration soon would be there
for all of the meals The Leftovers would bring
and for all of the packages tied up with string
that would need to be purchased and sent on their way
to arrive at our loved ones before Christmas Day.
Our bellies still full of meal satisfaction
now have to get moving for Black Friday action.
The lines were so long and the people so scary
the prices outrageous and the parking lot hairy…
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
but a coupon for half price that lasts the whole year!
So back to my car to my cell phone I call
I don’t have to shop on Black Friday at all!
And they heard me exclaim as I drove out of sight
Merry Christmas to all !
and a quiet Black Friday night !
