My mom powers can’t defeat
The lure of Target from across the street
I walk in with a simple agenda
Toothpaste, socks, and paper towels
I walk out with striped shirts, fuzzy slippers, and PJs with owls
Don’t hold me responsible, the place is a wonderland
With promises of chic decor and tasty treats,
Monogrammed plates, I’m at your command
There’s a $1 section right inside the door
With seasonal goodies that have you begging for more
Every which way, the sights dazzle and delight
Turkey napkin rings for Thanksgiving night
Pink q-tips, glitter stationery, the latest water bottles too
I wave my debit card and say “Alakazoo”
Our holiday guests simply must eat off of foliage dishware
Christmas tree ladles? I’ll take the pair!
Now shoppers, wait, there’s still more
A little surprise as I head towards the door
I swipe my plastic and what’s there that I see?
All of my loot came to $26.93!
