Black Friday Breakdown

'Twas one month before Christmas and all through the town
The thunderous roar of hurried steps shook the ground
Hundreds of shoppers rushed in through the doors
Leaving many a person with bruises and sores
The sales were big and the crowds even bigger
The race had begun, the hand on the clock was the trigger
The prices on stocks very quickly arose
As cart after cart filled with presents and bows
C.O.'s of corporations we all hold so dear
Can now sleep at night with nothing to fear
From being stuck in the red most have begun to bounce back
As millions of loyal shoppers put them back in the black
At the local installments of retailers we love
Customers fought for their items with a push and a shove
Some even waiting from four after noon
Determined enough to out stay the moon
At Home Depot orange aprons held back a small flood
Shoppers pushed through the doors like hungry wolves that smell blood
This year at Wal-mart there was organized chaos
An attempt, I am sure, to prevent injury and loss
Then as shirts pants and shoes were tossed in numbers untold
The employees of stage were ready to fold and refold
The madness calmed as the sun peeked over the hills
And store management smiled as they counted green bills
'Twas a joyous Black Friday, I'm sure most would agree
Now bring out the decorations and hang them onto your tree
I'll end with a message to those far and near
Merry Christmas to all, I hope it's another good year.
