I gleaned a new phrase on the Net;
This 'shopping-frenzy' leads to debt
Consumerism gone too far
We're over-burdened as we are!
This «Buy two, get one free!»* is mad
The clutter mounts up – it is sad
While many have to pinch and scrape
Others overfill their plate!
Excessive packaging and hype
Fruit, bright-coloured, overripe
Stacked with deluxe goods in piles.
This strategy is tailor-made
So off-guard shoppers are waylaid
And fill their trolleys to the brim
Judgement altered on a whim!
It's up to us to take a stand!
'Black Fridays' have got out of hand
Imagine fifty shades of grey
If Christmas shoppers stayed away!
