Shopping at Wal-Mart

Shopping at Wal-Mart

 

By Elton Camp

 

Worse economic woes could be in store

So I watch what I spend as never before

And that is now the principal reason why

That our Wal-Mart is where I usually buy

 

At that place, I find very little I can praise,

Except that it’s true, “Low Prices Always”

And I can even understand the reasons why

Their own store brands they urge me to buy

 

But if saving money wasn’t any object at all

At a much nicer store I would prefer to call

One that would help me get out to my car

And closer parking so I don’t walk so far

 

At an establishment where the clerk tries

To help me find what’s in my own size

Where checkout lines don’t reach the wall

And my money is taken without any stall

 

Where the employees don’t give a blank stare

And about giving good service, show they care

A place where they carry the quality brands

Rather than having mainly the unknown cans

 

And in a building where I don’t walk a mile

From the entrance to the milk and bread aisle

To a pharmacy where they don’t close for lunch

So they can eat together—the whole bunch

 

To a business that doesn’t look for a cheater

With a person in the guise of a store greeter

One that beggars at the entrance won’t allow

Who try to milk me like I am some cash cow

 

As soon as I approach the door, they begin

And when I am trying to leave, do it again

“Please give to the cause near to my heart.

So that doing our new project we can start.”

 

If I could afford extra money to give away

It sure wouldn’t be costs like that I’d defray

As I drive out of the enormous parking lot

I wish I could afford a better shopping spot
