Dear Merchants (Limerick)

Dear Merchants (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s Black Friday — you want us to shop,
To spend all of our money, non-stop.
But I won’t spend a dime
Cuz I’d rather spend time
Writing rhymes I could trade. Care to swap?

    I have a rhyme or fifty I can trade
    So much better than the fake sales they made
    Black Friday is a crock
    Yet nutso people still flock

    “Ma’am, our prices will bring you to tears,
    And our service will drive out your fears.
    Take this Lexus! I say,
    If you buy it today,
    You’ll be paying for forty-eight years.”

    Many people bought presents today,
    waited in lines making sure to save.
    But I don’t have the cash
    even with prices slashed.
    So, all of our presents are homemade.

  4. Edmund Conti says:

    The reason that Friday is black
    Is that shoppers (alas and alack)
    Will all bare their souls
    Those very black holes
    When they go on “one-half-off” attack.
