That Was Fun. Start And Done!

Isn't it grand how it is the change of season yet it is ignored for some reason. I wonder why that could be? I bet it has to do with money. What is that you say? It is because of Santa's sleigh? Well I guess it is the most wonderful time of the year. So it must make fall disappear.

For out come the winter clothes,
Talking about snow causing woes.
Out comes the lights,
That light up those cold nights.

What about fall?
Halloween candy still resides on the wall.
But oh that christmas tree.
Is really a sight to see.

Act now and get an ornament free.
Who cares if today isn't christmasy.
Just buy the thing up.
Look, even a christmas cup.

Oh there are some dvds too.
Already there to view.
Wait! There is more.
We are packing the store.

Gift wrap as well.
Bows are so swell.
Snowglobes too.
Snow tires must come due.

That kind of makes sense.
But let's say they are dense.
Big honking reindeer for the lawn.
Fall is just a con.

Shop early and get the buys.
Why would we tell lies?
Batman says to buy.
Elmo wants you to give it a try.

Count to three,
And go on a shopping spree.
Who cares if the same thing will be had,
In the coming months at our pad.

Right now is where it is at.
Fall is out like a rat.
While winter comes to play,
Each and every day.

Get your chocolate calendars too.
Buy two for your zoo.
That way you are in luck.
By spending the extra buck.

For October has 31 days too.
Use the first on cue.
Then the days will pass fast.
Our sales will be more vast.

Forget about fall.
Why sit in a stall?
Just buy buy buy.
Says the jolly old fat guy.

Isn't it grand how the stores are all ready for the Christmas season? You'd think by fall coming it has committed treason. They just want to skip over it, stopping for Halloween a bit and then move on to all those decorations that will dawn your lawn. Hope they don't dig too deep in my grass. They might not like what they find from my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. You're right Pat about how Fall is ignored for a commercial reason, it's something I didn't really think of but you're actually right. Great post Pat, it's cool to be back to the old Fall finishing line, Fall is here and Winter may be near but to ignore Fall is queer. Not queer as in gay too, just in a strange way.

      Of snow I'm not a fan
      I'd rather hang on to fall
      And yeah it gets skipped with their sales call

  4. What Christmas sales galore
    Year end sale is a bother
    More value gained
    Than of Halloween
    That's what stores are after

  5. I'll skip
    the ho, ho, ho
    and leave
    Santy Claus
    alone.

    I'll enjoy
    today while
    Autumn holds
    sway.

    Winter not
    yet begun
    can stay
    away
    from me
    and my bay.

    1. Yeah I agree
      Winter can just flee
      And leave me be
      I don't want it at my sea
      And the cat will be there
      At your lair
      You always post when I'm asleep

  8. If there isn't fall, Christmas,Halloween,thanksgiving the winter shall be forever, ask a kiwi or oz they can tell you, they celebrate these during summer.
    I prefer buying, it improves economy and let's people invent and innovate more,think about India, they won't buy so they won't invent anything either.
    Btb, I am holding off my mobile purchase till November. ;)

    Hey, I left a review for your book, please let me know if you want to change it, I thought that brickbat tone shall be good. Let me know.

    1. Back to blogland once more
      To give an encore
      And yeah I don't mind buying when the time comes due
      Except when they shove things in your view
      Keeps the world going round
      So more things can be found
      And great review thanks a ton
      Glad the book was fun

  9. I don't like my holidays to overlap
    I cringe when in September I see santa's sack!
    I like fall to be fall
    and that includes thanksgiving at my hall
    no red or green
    will be seen
    until December
    when it's truly winter!

    1. Yeah that is the best
      But they have to market and test
      Sucking all in
      So they can sell more and more at their walmart bin
      Although not truly winter until the 21st or so
      So if you wait that long at your show
      Be kind of late
      For a christmas plate

      Delete
    2. yep..it's all about greed
      that you often say at your feed
      and I don't really wait until the 21st
      but I do wait for December 1st!
      In fact, today my fall wreath will go on the door
      as it officially isn't fall any more!
      But Halloween won't be scene
      until mid October. I know, I'm mean!
      hahaha.

    2. You may want to come to the aid of your fellow male Cat. I've just come from there and insulted the hell out of him! That's what he gets for picking on my girlfriend!

      You and Dan are both arsemonkey's Cat!

      We've got Dan on the ropes Elsie, now we just have to gag and tie this fetid, foul feline up and throw him in the ocean! He'll be sleeping with the fishes by the end of the week!
