Eighty-Nine Cents At The Thrift Sto' - Poem by Deidre Dixon
Have you ever noticed when you compliment a lady about what she looks like or has on,
She will give you the background story about it to include where she got it from!
Girrrrl, I like those shoes you sportin'; they really look sharp on you!
'Oh, thank you, ' she's says and commences to tell you where you can pick up a pair too!
You ain't said nothin' about you wanted a pair of them same shoes for yourself.
You already a diva, and in your mind, you really don't need no help!
You say, 'Hey lady, let me see your hair. That hairstyle is on point! '
She'll say, 'Thank you, ' but she gonna tell you when she got it done, who did it and what hair joint!
'Ooh girl, ' you say. 'Let me see your nails 'cause they are just bad! '
She gonna grin and tell you what salon she went to and which technician she had!
You can compliment you sister and tell her how you like the way her sandals look on her feet.
She'll start talkin' about, 'Girl, I got these last Saturday around two o'clock on Today's Special on QVC! '
Instead of taking a compliment we receive and just saying, 'Thank you' and go,
We got to tell the whole background story about how, 'I got this for eighty-nine cents at the Thrift Sto'! ! '
