‘Twas days before Christmas, when all through the formerly organized house,
every child was stirring, hopefully without louse — yes, tea tree oil works.
SUVs were swerving in the Target parking lot without care,
in hopes the discounted Nintendo Switch still would be there.
Shoppers were frantic, in need of anti-anxiety meds,
while visions of Happy Hour cocktails danced in their heads.
And Mama in her Lululemon with her rose gold yoga mat,
got stuck in line at JuiceLand, so she scrolled Insta and sat.
Mama took a moment to check her holiday card list,
fearing there was a friend she might’ve missed.
