The discount stores and malls have all been tried,
but Sega Dreamcast Two’s completely sold.
A Razor (not to shave with but to ride)
Nintendo, Pokémon (silver or gold),
the latest Barbie, G.I. Joe, a game,
some C. S. Lewis tales I hope they’ll read—
It seems that every year it is the same
They give me “wants” and say they really need
the stuff.

An unexpected pregnancy—
the better gift. An angel tells some men
about a birth and they decide to see
if what they heard was true.

But that was then.

To shop a distant time and place, I know,
would be the answer to my shopping woe.
