It’s time, once again, for Poetic Thursday over at Two Spoiled Cats . Here is the photo Pam provided as inspiration for this week’s poem:
This made me think of my late brother-in-law, Ed. In addition to the picture, my poem was also inspired by him and his last minute (by choice) Christmas shopping:
Christmas Eve Shopper
Early in December, he can’t understand
all the rushing around with gift lists in hand.
He laughs and says: “I can do it all
with one Christmas Eve trip to the mall”.
Man on a mission, he joins the crowd.
His shopping’s soon done, and he’s feeling proud.
Then he heads back home, where down he’ll flop,
giving truth to the saying: “shop til you drop”.
Is your Christmas shopping complete? Or are you a Christmas Eve shopper?
