Buy, buy, buy

Make the pain go away

No longer smoke

Eat chocolate

Booze or toke

Nothing to do


Buy, buy, buy

Borderline hoarder

Part of the Acquisition Society

The only relief for my anxiety

My poor sons

Shoveling out my sh*t

When I pass to the

Great beyond

The thing is

One ages

Wisdom is the gift

Seeing the truth

Yet still empty


Dunked in the Fountain of Youth

All that remains

Is to smile at myself

Now knowing that buying

Is the cure

To make that desperation

An aching starvation

Go away

For at least a day…

      1. haha! Go for it, Clarissa! BTW, have you signed up for Musicians Friend’s stupid deal of the day? If you download the app, it sends you daily deals. I got a solid koa lanikai soprano uke with built in electronics for 99 dollars and free shipping.

  1. I was browsing computer parts on e-bay when I read this great piece. You’ve said it all. *sighs and shrugs* Maybe I could be doing something wiser, but I could be doing something worse :/ .
