Publisher's Clearing House at the Door

Publisher’s Clearing House at the Door

 

By Elton Camp

 

Just a little hint to you we drop

Your house may be our next stop

It could so very likely, maybe, be

Prize for person with initials “EC”

 

Just in case, please do not neglect

To tell how this vast prize to collect

Want to get it all at one time?

Or over many years be fine?

 

Law makes us explain why

To win, there’s nothing to buy

But if with us you want to rate,

An order we would appreciate

 

Down endless pages to scroll

Amazing bargains we extol

Cannot through them quickly rip

Every item, check Accept or Skip

 

Failure to order treated like sin

Won’t you take a look again?

Will always take you to task

“Please reconsider,” we do ask

 

Think you might be through?

Up pops another page or two

This is a bonus chance to enter

Could just make you a winner

 

Featured partner has his say

Before you can get away

If you didn’t bite before

Here’s one chance more

 

When at your house we arrive

We will pull right up your drive

Rush up and ring your bell

The very good news to tell

 

 

 

For us, will be a job so grand

To place a check in your hand

You will experience joy extreme

Rich beyond your wildest dream

 

Please now, consider this, my friend

Million not enough, how about ten?

Be rich for the rest of your life

Freedom from all debt and strife

 

Your job you can quit today

Time for you to rest and play

Never more will you have to work

Nobody will say “Old lazy jerk.”

 

This will only be a starter

So says Mary Ann Carter

Local press we notify

Have them standing by

 

So expect to get calls on your phone

From everyone you’ve ever known

“Just had to congratulate you, honey,

Now that you got so much money.”

 

It is my earnest prayer

You’ll give me a share

Life to me has been so hard

My request, do not discard

 

Heavy burden I’m glad to relieve

More blessed to give than receive

Will come to visit right away

The best would be this very day

 

So you’ll know what you must do

Caller comes from Internal Revenue

“See here, you, now don’t you dare

Neglect to give Uncle Sam’s share

 

There seems no reason why

To PCH ads to fail to reply

Somebody’s going to win

So send it off once again

 

 

To enter sweepstakes is still fun

Though odds are a billion to one

Nobody I know has won a dime

Yet, continue to reply each time.
