Spent

Like ever I procrastinate
then purchase in a frenzied rush,
precariously navigate
the whiny, aisle-blocking crush
while hackneyed carols resonate
until you pray for them to hush—
I’ve mumbled my last expletive
there’s truly nothing left to give.

Spoken like a curmudgeon of the first order! Excuse me while I wipe away a little tear...

Sorry... I always get a little emotional when someone plays my themesong.

Good job, Bob, it couldn't be expressed any better.

Don't pay any attention to Bubba...he crys a lot! Great poem and just like
"the best spots are not on the map" the best gifts can't be bought!
