Food for Thought-Layaway is Back

Layaway is back,
Wal-Mart waits,
While the money gestates,
As people buy in,
To more consumerist sin,
Bigger and better,
Wider screens are what matter,
To watch those guilty of domestic abuse,
Make obscene money while on the loose,
We pretend we like to care,
While wearing jerseys in our lounge chairs.
But really we don’t give a flip,
As long as our lives aren’t challenged a bit.
