Scott’s Daily Prompt: Afford

🎄🎄🎄

Well here it is December eight

So many items on your plate

All preparing for the 25 date

Certainly, you need not be late.

🎄🎄🎄

A gift for George, a boogie board

A soccer ball for a reward

A music box that plays a chord

Of course you’re sure you can afford.

🎄🎄🎄

That diamond necklace for her neck

Apple Watch, the latest tech

Wooden toys kids can’t wreck

All these gifts–what the heck?

🎄🎄🎄

Little Susie needs that doll

Then puppy Spot wants a ball

Grandma June could use a shawl

All available at the mall.

🎄🎄🎄

Gifts galore, spending plenty

Opened gifts, more than twenty

Dollars spent, even pennies

Why then do you feel so empty.

🎄🎄🎄

The money spent for such things

Tied with ribbons, even strings

Does much lasting comfort bring?

Search your heart for love that wings

Instead.

🎄🎄🎄
