LX - Christmas Offensive

Christmas Eve, in a shopping mall near you...

Christmas Offensive

If you go down to the shops today,
You're sure of expensive buys;
If you go down to the shops today
You’ll have a quick demise;
For every store that’s down there will
Have upped their prices and stuffed their till,
For today’s the day the merchants make a killing.

  1. Doesn't pay to put up two posts at once, does it!

  2. so wait till later, good friend of mine.
    When good prices are left us, on all, even twine.
    And with your savings, not only have you things that shine,
    but also enough to buy a good bottle of wine!

    Oh, goodness, that's right! Isn't that devine?
    It almost makes Christmas shopping worth trying.
    Just wait till after the merchants are done prying
    the money from our hands, and leave their wares just lying....



You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
