Oh such joy!

No matter where you go

There's jingles on the commercials

Telling you

Buy this for him

Buy this for her

After all, commercials are never wrong

Especially when they have Christmas songs

Perhaps the holiday excites some

Surely kids, this day rules all

But as we age, we see through the veil

There's no Santa, only sales

Buy me, Give me

These transactions we all share

Give me this, in exchange I'll give you that

It's not the thought that counts

Gift cards are well worth the cost

I love you

I give you this

You love me

You give me that

But please I don't want you leaving me

If you don't like my gift

Then give me something worth receiving.
