Poetry Thursday

 

 


Once again, Angel Sammys and Teddys Pawetaton have provided us with a photo for Poetry Thursday.



Hats, Bats, Shoes, Booze, Mountain bikes, Potpourri, Leather bags, Girlie mags, forty-fives

Everything your heart desires

All those things that you have been wishing

Are waiting for you in the last hours of Thanksgiving


For five hundred you can get a brand-new TV

Just costs a kidney, who needs to pee?

Buy four IPads get the fifth for free

If you can survive the mosh pit in aisle three


How about Pelaton, wouldn’t that be wild?

All it will cost you is your eldest male child

Computers, clothes, perfume made by Jimmy Cho

To get them you need to manage time like Doctor Who


What’s an elbow in the ribs when you’re getting such a bargain

A cappuccino maker is worth the kick keeping you from ever having a hard-on

Aunt Edna will love the velvet chiffon

You’re going to have to send it from jail, to get it you shivved Puerto Rican Juan


There’s a TV for sale with the biggest screen you have ever seen

The cost: An associate will remove your spleen

Think of all the savings on that pair of designer jeans

Twenty percent off it you lick clean the latrines


Bargains everywhere, what a show!

This ring will make your wife love you like Marilyn did Dimggio

All you need to get it is to give the manager fellatio

If you’ve read enough of my poems that rhyme was something you would know


The violence and greed are at the extremes

If people would think they would know our sales are specious

But the thing that most pleased\s us

Is the season is about shopping and not a kid named Jesus
