SHOPPING   VICTIM   -   HONEST!



I am being held an unwilling captive
My rights are being abused I can tell
What was to have been a short visit
Now they are handcuffing me and I am in hell

Though Christmas shopping can be quite tiring
And many a Scrooge stays away at home
You have to admit all the shopping malls
Are veritable feasts of festivities zones

There are reindeers galloping in the air
And Santa slipping down a chimney or two
Children with chocolaty grins waiting at the grotto
The constant jabbering makes it sound like a zoo

Both men and women love going Christmas shopping
Finding gifts for their dearest and near
But today I found all the exit doors locked
And I was mortified with blind fear

Johnny Mathis is still singing about a Child being born
Always has been a great favourite of mine
Still, the newness begins to lose its edge
After hearing it for the forty fourth time

Those demon shop-keepers are at blame here
They are demanding my money – let me go
They insist I stay there till I have spent up
So I am just going along with the flow

Oh look, there's a Bobbi Brown lipstick I haven't got
And another pair of shoes, my third pair this week
A handbag to match and a nice jacket
My mascara could do with a tweak

Stop making me spend, you evil devils
Let me go home with my last fiver in purse
If I buy another dress no matter the colour
My wardrobe will scream and completely burst

A little white lie, I didn't really get locked in
But that's what I will say when accused of overspending
Because now I am miserable and penniless
Hey mate, how are you at lending?
