Retail Joy

The promise of the retail store
Is that sitting on their shelves
Is the thing your heart has been yearning for
All along,
All you need is cash
And you too will be care-free
Wind in your hair
Living your best life,
But how much happiness
Can you actually buy?
There are hard limits to what
Retail joy
Can really deliver
And even its greatest offerrings
Fall far, far short
Of what your heart truly seeks.
