My Poems  

Christmas $hopping

A poem by Beverly Stock.

I dreamt that in suburban malls,

Credit cards in sunlight laying,

Came some girls in posh overalls

Each held plastic, gently swaying.

Some admired their long polished nails,

And some cursed the snowy weather,

All wanted pretty things to buy

So they all hung out together.

The lure was the same for all,

Any day of the week, sale, sale, sale!

That’s why they were at the mall

To pay much less than retail.

What days of the week was shopping best?

Was it Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

This group chose a conservative quest–

To Christmas shop every Monday thru Sunday.
