Wal-Mart is having a sale

with one comment

Wal-Mart is having a sale
John Wayne war movies
Two flags for a dollar
Get your supplies, 22, and shells

Limp dick pills, tread mills, hurry on down
We have dog collars, and video games too
Learn yourself young how to kill (with a joystick)

Come on mama, Wal-Mart is having a sale
Ten local businesses for the price of two

Reduced prices in hardware
Tire shops, oil lube, boob tubes, photos and more
Netting, sewing, arts and crafts
Hunting and fishing, grocery goods
A super sale in sportswear
Jewels for the shopping fools
Wayne Newton CDs, DVDs and over-seas sneakers along with the glue

Come on kids, Wal-Mart is having a sale
School supplies at the corporate rate
#2 pencils, pens, pads, paper, magic markers and a wallet for dad
Buy an USA Pride T-shirt
United We Stand in an outfit made by a seven year old girl (slavery)

Have you heard Wal-Mart is coming to a town near you?
They’ll be happy for you to work in blue for the yellow tag sales
You’ll be dancing to the minimum wage department store blues
10% off all the guns and knives and camping gear too
You may need the supplies when the benefits can’t pull you through

Smiles, drug tests, and non-Union shifts
Come on America…
Wal-Mart is having a sale!

  1. If you read between the lines— this poem in many ways reflects one of the reasons we have a world where the Tea Party is making noise. What’s the alternative for the trailer park families that don’t have a pot to piss in, and very little education? It’s a cruel game. Until we create progressive social programs that blanket regions of our country that are sucking wind, and living on a prayer and hopelessness, it’s unfortunately, one alternative. Some of peers mock, and ask how could the Tea Party exist with such ignorance? I can see it plain as day, it’s called globalization.
