The Power Shopper Blues...
Quickly, quickly I must fly away home!
the credit card bill arrived
and Mancave's at home!
What will he do? What will he say?
"Fabric again? Or was it the mall all in one day?
Well, which is it?" He asks as his face turns bright red -
"Darling, I thought we had talked about this..." he said.
"Well? Well?" I stammered and replied,
(Somehow the joy of all that shopping had just died.)
"It turned out that Macy's AND JoAnn's both had big sales!"
and then of course there was that one at Bloomingdale's..."
Mancave was not...shall we say "amused"
by the bill listings of scarves, mittens and shoes.
All bought by me and my little green friend, '
with a flick of my wrist or sometimes by clicking "Send".
Yes, I'll admit the bill was daunting,
not to me-but to Mancave it was quite haunting!
"Cut it up!" he exclaimed! "It's not your friend!
Here's the scissors, it helps first to give it a bend..".
Never to shop or go out for a meal?
What about the clearance sales, bonus and the door buster deals?
What about the holidays? What will I do?
I was no slacker-I charged those gifts for you!
No more catalogs, no more fun-
because Financial Peace University now has begun!
