VISA Gives You Thanks November 10, 2011Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Less IS More, Poetry.
Before little ghosts and goblins
Have time to “Trick or Treat”
Shoppers are regaled with Holiday Ads
Christmas Cards and Scented Wreaths
Christmas has become much more
Than stockings hung with care
For months, exhausted shoppers
Troll stores while carols flood the air
Holiday shopping and spending
Results in empty accounts at banks
And credit cards charged to the max
For which, Visa gives you thanks!
The Holidays come but once a year
Perhaps that’s for the best
After all the shopping and wrapping
Good consumers need a rest
Reconnect with the Holiday Spirit. Join S.C.R.O.O.G.E (the Society to Curtail Ridiculous, Outrageous, Ostentatious Gift Exchanges). Decorate a tree with nuts, seeds, & berries for the birds. Invite friends over for cookies, cocoa, and a Holiday Movie. Focus on the abundance in your life.
Aah . . . that’s better!
