Poet Paul On Black Friday

It’s a sure sign of our econo mee
Bread lines as far as we see
Clutching their coats and shuffling their feet
They’re not in line for something to eat
They’re at Best Buy for a flat screen TV!


The Statesman said it in type
“Black Friday is meaningless hype”
Merchants don’t think
They’ll drown in red ink
For they welcome each credit card swipe!
