But, even though it is getting colder outside, and we are only just heading into long winter months, I still feel a new life of blogging ahead of me. And I ambeing a little dramatic; a lot did happen in the last year. A marriage, a pregnancy, a CD release.... There is and will be lots to blog about! And I have missed my "Ode's To..." So in honour of my new found blogging and the Christmas season approaching (and the special day that it is) here is:
An Ode To Black Friday
Oh, shops, full of stuff
full of people running wild
Did you forget what you were looking for
when you stepped on that child?
Or was that flat screen TV the best of all deals?
I only hope you can afford all your coming Christmas meals.
It sickens me to see all this stuff we think we need
and that a "lady" will fight
and pepper spray will proceed
hair pulling and screaming just to get that "special" thing
I don't want any part of it
No more gadgets that go 'bing'!
I only hope that this Christmas we'll remember what we should
People we love, food that is shared, laughing with friends
All things good.
Oh, black friday,
we know you mean well
but you come straight from he-- Oops!
Happy Christmas Shopping everyone!!
