Black Friday

This is the Friday they call black

When shops roll their prices back

To the level of the month before

Claiming savings throughout the store

We aren’t supposed to remember

Last Tuesday’s price hike

They’ll tell you “”It’s an illusion

The prices are nothing alike.”

But don’t you worry about a thing

This “One time offer”

Will be repeated next spring

Luck

Karen went ballistic when she found out that her husband, Kenneth, had gambled away their entire life’s savings.

“What were you thinking?” she yelled in a shrill tone.

“Well you remember when I asked you to marry me and you said, ‘Yes, I guess this is your lucky day’.”

“Yes, I remember.”

“Well, I was just trying to prove that you were right. So, in reality, it’s your fault.”

The Getaway

He passed by here on the double fast

He arrived – but his stay didn’t last

More important matters on him did weigh

So with a wave and a nod and he was on his way

What was the task of such import?

“Just in a hurry,” was his retort

But the news has since come to my attention

He was running from the posse, wanting to avoid detention

For the judge had ordered for him

A rope-based suspension
