'Twas the Day After Thanksgiving

'Twas the day after Thanksgiving, when all through the mall,

shoppers stood in long lines that reached the back wall.

With walkways too crowded and parking a mess,

Black Friday was causing consumer distress.

When just down the street, there arose such a glow

from the storefront of a local shopkeeper I know.

He invited us in - even offered us chairs -

and was ever so cheerful while he showed off his wares.

He had handcrafted specialties and homemade delights

and gadgets and gizmos.and the best Christmas lights!

He wrapped what we purchased with delicate care,

and we finished our shopping with a few hours to spare!

So, support small business as you shop this December

for the gifts that'll make this a holiday to remember.

And if you really need another good reason,

don't forget - parking is free - so shop local this season!
