Day after day,
And then week after week,
The year has gone now,
Waiting for boredom to speak.
People do all sorts of things,
To distract themselves from the monotony,
I work and play, sometimes write,
And that’s become my life’s anatomy.
Until, one day at the office,
With mindless paperwork, when i wasn’t inspired,
I stumbled upon this sparkly website,
It’s been psychotic, what has since transpired.
A bauble here caught my fancy,
A trinket held me firm, like glue,
Just a little cash they say,
We can be yours, in red, pink and blue.
Starry eyed I clicked away,
Doing the math in my head,
Yeah so i’ll skip a few movies,
All reason, seems to have fled.
Living from delivery to delivery,
I wait to see what’s next,
What can I buy now,
It’s like I’m under a bloody hex!
My bank balance keeps falling,
My salary seems to shrink,
A week left to pay day,
I see my wallet, and i need a drink.
I need to rein it in, I say,
The devil himself tempts me,
One more pretty dress, couldn’t hurt,
Oh my god, now I must flee.
Purse strings tight,
I stay on the wagon the next few weeks,
The shoppaholic has been slayed,
I celebrate, smiling from cheek to cheek.
Until a Friday, when things are rather slow,
I sit at my desk and wonder,
I could just have a lil peek,
Yeah, I know, that’s a big ol blunder.
Another few hundreds gone,
A sin, a crime I’ve committed,
But those shoes were so stunning,
I’m no good, against consumerism to be pitted.
What can I say, I make no apologies,
What I do is personal philanthropy,
I’m girl and a notorious one at that,
I’ve tried it all, but nothing’s as good as retail therapy 😀
