2010 November PAD- Day 21

The prompt today was to write a permission poem.

A Shopper’s Lament

Every year from the middle of October
clear through the end of the year,
the stores have a million and one reasons why
we should drop everything and buy, buy, buy.

Try as hard as I might to resist
this annual media blitz,
the pressure really starts to mount
when days ‘til Christmas we begin to count.

But this year is going to be different,
I’m giving myself the permission
not to buy everything in sight
and I’m sure things will still be alright!
