The Day After Turkey

Twas the morn after Turkey Day. All through the house
Not a creature was stirring, save this eager mouse!
Through the darkness I tiptoed to start up my sleigh
In the early A.M. of this famed shopping day.
I tore across town with a gleam in my eye,
Pulled into a spot right in front of Best Buy,
And zipping my coat up to fend off the cold
Sought the end of the line...
As it lengthened ten fold!
Soon I and these legions of fellow deal-seekers
Hopped forward a bit on the balls of our sneakers,
And into the aisles of the store we all flooded.
Merchandise flew as the shelves were all gutted!
That's when this poor wretched mousey was told
That the two reduced netbooks they'd offered were sold.
Yes, I had been lured to that store with a story
Then slapped with excuses of low inventory.
The mice who had snatched up the netbooks I'd sought
Had camped for three days in the south parking lot!
So I turned on my heels and went back to my ride,
Empty handed, downhearted, defeated inside.
As I tumbled my poor mousey soul back to bed,
Visions of empty shelves danced in my head.
I tossed and I turned and I tried to dismiss this
Foreboding that Santa might skip us this Christmas.
But when I awoke I felt rested and fine,
And resigned to complete all my shopping...

My friends,
If you take advantage of my Thanksgiving sale,
You will get a free CD with the purchase of my new CD,
I guarantee that I'll not run out of free CDs,
There is no parking, no line, no cold, 
No shipping, no tax, no kidding!
And what better gift than the gift of music?
Please check it out at!
