Daily Prompt: Zoo

Going shopping tomorrow

I know what you’re thinking

Joining the rest of the zoo

Dazzled eyes will keep blinking

The lights are really my fave

Trees all aglow, I could rave

On about all the decorations

Even Salvation Army stations

These people who man them

Deserve an anthem

Daily ringing the bell

Hoping donations swell.

Then there are Santas at every turn

Seeing them what do kids really learn

When do they start to ask if he’s real

We always delayed just to keep the feel

Of wonderment and surprise

Closeted presents from prying eyes

Yes, I agree, shopping’s a zoo

But I’ve nothing better to do

Standing in lines listening to hymns

Admiring all the Christmas trims

I’m really looking forward to it

The people, the music, all of it.
