    Poem Commentary

    some stores were open all day for black friday

    "A Holiday Of Rest"

    2 more for my 2nd book
    "A Holiday Of Rest"
    I love the holiday season
    a chance to sleep in
    I hate to have to do this but
    I have to go home
    have a Happy rest of Thanksgiving
    mom and dad, I'm sure the nurses
    will show you the same affection
    just like your family
    but I really have to go I have to go
    to bed early
    I'm getting up at 11 tonight as I have
    important places I have to be 
    I think I'll start at Macy's
    jewelry's on sale
    then I'll check out the lingerie
    at the store next door to Zale's
    I know you're getting older folks
    but I'm doing this for you
    to show my love at Christmas
    there's a lot of shopping to do
    you see I have to be the first in line
    if I hope to get the best
    so now it's off to home to bed and to
    my Black Friday rest
    the holiday's are here again 
    and thankful I surely am
    that I got my bonus check on time
    I have something nice in mind
    there's the cutest diamond bracelet
    I want it really bad
    I don't want anyone else to have it
    especially my friend Glad
    I'm thankful for the stores
    that open before dawn
    so I can get the things I crave 
    before they all are gone
    So bye bye Mom and Dad
    such a blessed day we had
    but this is so important not to miss
    sacrifices are to be made
    so hopefully I'll see you soon again
    after all the Christmas day
    sales.
    Happy Holidays everyone and God bless 
    P.S. do you have any of those Sears coupons left?

    "A Thanksgiving Thank You"
    they sailed the ships of brotherhood
    bound together with the glue of shared experiences 
    sails made of courage
    held high by common valor
    a valor shared by all
    through battle after battle
    hardships after pain and illness
    a mighty fleet they made
    a fleet of heroes all
    bonded by years of war
    and hardship
    they were mighty in their bravery
    beautiful in the love they held for each other
    come through the common battles for freedom
    evil reared it's head and nations joined together
    in common their hatred of the hate
    so many brainwashed peoples shared
    misled by their leaders who were the spawn of satan
    Hitler, Hirohito, and others who followed them
    needed to be smashed and never seen again
    their ilk still live but thankfully they scurry in gutters
    like the evil vermin they are
    those that sailed the ships of freedom
    made these ships of brotherhood
    bound together by a common goal to set this world free
    their sails made of the courage of battle hardened men
    men and women who saw the face of evil
    and stared it down
    stared it down without flinching
    by satan Hitler was most certainly possessed
    insane as were his kind
    Hirohito was God? give me a break
    bands of people, brothers and sisters from everywhere
    determined to stop these bigoted and grandiose morons
    determined to end the killing
    and they did
    these ships sailed home victorious after saving the world
    from the incredible dreams of evil dreamt by bigots and the greedy
    funny how war and greed go hand in hand
    the bravest and the greatest nations could offer
    set the world free and saved nation after nation from more death
    the ships of brotherhood contained the hopes of the world
    bound together with the glue of love 
    love for what is right and for each other
    uncommon solidarity and courage
    unflinching in the face of evil
    are just part of what make our parents part of the greatest generation
