Just When I Thought I'D Seen It All - Poem by Tom J. Mariani

OK I know it's a liitle early
For Christmas poems
But the catalogues have been coming
By mail for weeks

So I'll keep this short
For those of you or
People on your shopping list
Who still have self-winding watches

Wrist that is
That need help getting wound
It's hard to believe
But they have come up with a cure

This machine $100 to $200
Holds one or up to four
Wrist watches - - - at last count
I only needed one

If you haven't had enough activity
During the day
To get your watch wound
It will do it for you while you rest

However if you can't get your watch to go
I can't see why you'd need more rest
I cut the advertisement out
So I can look at it

From time to time
And remember when
At 11: 02 - - mail was early that day
I saw it all
