Black Friday

Day 25: a "consumption" poem, something having to do with consumers, consuming etc. Definitely a no brainer on this one. My personal experience here, sadly, haha.

Black Friday

My sleep is still not quite right, having stayed
Up until midnight to stand in a line
Only to find another line at least 
Twice as long upstairs. Two hours later
Despite having made friends with the shoppers
In line with us, I was tired of it all.
And then the final blow:  a mere ten feet
From the cashier, a sales person announced:
"If you're waiting in line for the lap top,
We're all out." Really?? I tried not to cry.
