Thanksgiving, Day 2

Or,

I Didn't Let Black Friday Ruin My Day

Did you join with all the crazies
          Who got out of bed at 4:00
          Just to wait outside the door
          Of their (latest) favorite store
          For those bargains, cheap, galore
The morning of the day after Thanksgiving?

Me, I joined the other lazies
          Who stayed right at home in bed
          With the covers o’er their head
          Not bein’ trampled – left for dead –
          And so thankful that, instead,
I can count myself as still among the living.
