We Pause for this Commercial Interruption
'Twas two days after Christmas and all through the town
The lights and the wreaths were all coming down.
The shoppers had shopped, the gifts had gone back,
The bills from the credit cards were all in a stack.
The eggnog was gone, the tips had been tipped,
The gift to Aunt Millie had finally been shipped.
The lines at the mall were finally shorter
and holiday items went for two-and-a-quarter.
The children were safely all tucked in their beds
as visions of next Christmas danced in their heads.
