Shopping Spree

I’ve been on an internet shopping spree
There’s something lost in the pit of me
Buy one of these and get another free!
I trade desolation for purchased glee

Click, click, click where it says buy
All else is useless, why even try?
What is this bargain I do espy?
Just want to laugh and no longer cry

I’ve been on an internet shopping binge
Deep within I’m really quite unhinged
With such prices how could I whinge?
I don’t feel my pain now, not one twinge

Click, click, click is a merry sound
If all your life is running aground
Here in the market are pleasures found
At least until your bills come around

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    I’m not sure if I’m laughing or crying about this one. I just imagine a Barbie-esque woman at the computer, dressed up nice, eyes wide, screwed on smile, buy buy buy and it’s fine fine fine!

  2. Don’t you miss the ‘Cut & Thrust and smell of blood’ you get when going to the Sales for real Helen? LOL :D

    • No, not at all…I avoid normal shopping like the plague…so I probably don’t buy more than others do really, it just seems that way to people I work with when internet shopping parcels keep arriving at work, LOLOL!! :) :)

    Haha! I dare to go there and often don’t realize how quickly things are adding up.

    • Yes, that is the problem with it all!! I just make sure I clear my credit card every fortnight on pay day and that way I know I don’t go over my actual disposable income! :) :)

    Really enjoyed this Helen and I am with you – shopping on the internet is the way to go. I avoid shopping at all costs if I possibly can! :-)

    Totally an internet shopping. I hate “real” shopping….p.j.’s, coffee, and a debit card. Yup! :)

    Hugs, Sis!!

  6. A lot of fun, reinforced by a playful pace, imho. :-)

  7. I let Sam do the internet shopping just encase lol I love the playful pace as well

  8. The malady that keeps us enslaved. You express it so well in your poem.
