Ã¢â‚¬ËœTwas the week before Christmas, when all through the land
Unprepared holiday shoppers were stressed, traffic was jammed.
People were yelling and fighting everywhere
There were no parking spots to be found, it was a nightmare.
And all through the mall
Holiday shoppers were scurrying like bats out of hell
There was pushing and shoving, screams could be heard
With the last perfect gift taken, there was not a kind word.
With the glee of the Holiday Season now gone
They return home with a yearning for egg nog and rum.
In their homes no presents were found under the tree decorated with care,
And no gifts had been found in the mall anywhere.
The children were nestled and sleeping in their beds,
While visions of shopping danced in worried heads.
Tossing and turning, a thought springs out
Online shopping, there is no doubt!
The clock strikes midnight, computers are turned on
Internet browsers are opened and smiles can be found.
For what to their wondering eyes should they see
"All Season Gifts" and shopping with ease!
Exquisite holiday gift baskets for everyone is found,
And with a click of a mouse, their shopping is done!
Returning to bed with a sigh of relief (online shopping was a snap!)
They lay down for a long winter's nap.
