John I. Blair
If I shop around
Iíll just buy something else
I do not need,
A beverage urn,
A case of puppy chow,
Three-pack of fine French wine.
Each visit to the Hypermart
Exposes me to more temptations,
Suckers my frugality.
What I should wish
Would be a
With Spartan aisles
I might stroll without regret
Past sparsely furnished shelves.
Sometimes we need protection from ourselves.
