Shopping Can Be Uplifting! - Poem by banamala sen
I love shopping! Please don't look at me shocked!
Such a treat,
When I get dressed, and drive down to the mall,
Almost a victory!
I love shopping - my clothes, my jewellery,
My shoes, my bags,
My books, my kitchen stuff, what not,
Almost anything in the world,
Shopping makes me excited, exalted, exhilarated, enlivened,
Just sauntering around the plaza,
And glance and stare, gaze and investigate,
And finally grab a few, or not,
Wow! My day is complete!
This red dress is so cute, that silk dress will fit me perfectly,
That shoe, with a golden heel, is out of this world!
I need a shiny purse, suitable for the upcoming wedding,
I need a stylish hat, the old one is not usable any more, gone out of fashion!
No wonder my family looks at me with suspicious eyes,
When I am dressed for the mall,
Do you really have to? It is chilly outside!
They want me to stay at home.
Is it only a woman's pastime?
Men, what do you know?
Women know how to shop, how to find the best deal,
For things they crave for.
Shopping can be uplifting -
Shopping can be fun,
Shopping can be expensive too,
If you don't stop your wife!
Christmas shopping, New Year shopping, Back to School shopping,
Don't forget Valentine's Day,
Boxing Day? OMG! Can never forget,
Get up early in the morning,
and calculate how much you can save!
The malls are there, wide open,
Twenty-four hours a day!
But after many years, I have decided,
Not to get carried away!
I made a promise to myself,
I will make a list,
And enter the malls with my chin high,
and eyes on only what I really need.
I am sure my decision will make a lot of people happy,
Not the store-owners,
Do I care for their happiness,
Or I care about mine!
