Oh, the Consumption

Many a turkey’s wishbone snapped
the wrong way, an illegal U-turn.
.008 and under is relatively safe.

Some are now afraid to drink Grandpa’s punch.

Wake up early, (it’s Black Friday)
standing in line while others stay in bed.
Get thi$ and that really cheap.

Young’uns see a lot of Santas fighting for deals.

Pearl Harbor Day marked on the calendar,
the flag to fly at half-mast across the nation.
One day of exploitative remembrance is sad.

Too many false patriots polluting the landscape.

Sewer grates and catalytic converters
are pilfered, a part-time gig.
$8-12 a pound for scrap iron.

Most Nativity scenes are now Chinese plastic.
