Poem: Black Friday
by June Nash
Well fed, next morn venture out
Along the Black Friday route
To buy gifts that kids don’t need
Buy, buy, to be done with deed
Need to get all the gifts bought
So our nerves will not be fraught
Come Christmas Eve under tree
Merry Christmas, it’s not free
I love to shop! I will be out stimulating the economy the day after Thanksgiving. I will not start until Friday. I do not want to be the cause of people having to work on Thanksgiving. I understand that some people must work. Their jobs are essential. I.e. police, firefighters, nurses, etc. Retail is not essential. I prefer to let those poor workers enjoy a day off with their families. Beside, I plan on enjoying the holiday with my family.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Don’t eat too much!
