all on everyone's mind
when a child of five
and another of thirteen
walk into a department store
the clerk turns away
from the older sister stealing socks
for the younger sibling
after all it's so very cold
but there's cameras on the ceiling
loss prevention has their task
merry christmas specials
aren't all the sales amazing?
only if there were less people
will that be credit or debit?
black friday has come and gone
but the season lives on
when those who never had anything
break into our cars
when we park at the mall
but those boxes were donations
going to juvenile hall
where the kids have no gifts
the whole lot will probably be sold
at discount online
oh well maybe next time...
this will be the first time
the family's getting a tree
the boys to pick it out
the girls decorate and put on the star
father plugs it in and we'll all clap
little did we know that later tonight
the dry needles and strung-around
christmas lights will not go together
without starting a midwinter fire
christmas lights have ruined our lives
but aren't all the sales amazing?
