All They Want for Christmas

The Christmas rush
Makes children flush
Whilst parents hush
The whining.

But stores, meanwhile
Push sale and style
Shoppers, beguiled,
Start signing.

For, though they claim
Their kids, they’ve tamed
Their budget, named
They’re finding

‘Twixt child and store
Both begging, “More,”
For rich or poor:
