'Twas the Night before Black Friday...

Postby jcuticchia » Sun Nov 21, 2010 5:36 pm

‘Twas Thanksgiving Night
At 2 am shall we leave
For the night is now know
By the name - BlackFriday Eve

The merchants are ready
The ads all dispersed
The time has come to empty
All in our purse

The line that we see
When we get to our first
We wonder if last year’s
Was better or worse

We stand like we’re soldiers
And going to war
Our assault plans in hand
We stare at the door

Even though there is time
Before the line moves us in
Store employees give tickets
For the best of the bin

Maps they hand out
Some better than others
Are other shoppers my enemy
Or are they my brothers?

Five minutes is left
Line compression begins
As we are all pushed on forward
The festivities begin

Once you cross past the threshold
The time is so tight
Make an early mistake
And you’ve blown your whole night

A madhouse in sues
And you hope that it’s friendly
Unfortunately at times
Black Friday is deadly

Over the years I have seen
Dozens of plans
Families dispursing about
Friends traveling in Clans

The people with carts
It must be their first time
For traveling fast
Over many I’ll climb

We herd all our things
To protect from bombard
Each taking our turns
Either shopper or guard

Once we are done
Or at least think we are
One searches for the line
The other for the car

The line like a serpent
Twists all through the store
As we walk through our paces
We decide to buy more

Five hours of our waiting
Fifteen minutes to shop
Two hours to checkout...
And then we all drop!
