It's Wally, by Golly

by BeasPeas

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #22-401-B
It's Wally, by golly, park the car.
In each town, don't have to go far.
Walmart's like a little city.
Some don't like it, what a pity.
One-stop shop for the stuff I need.
Others still say it's full of greed.
But I'm of the opposite bent,
believing it is Heaven sent.
Friendly folk who greet with a smile.
Down to earth, just the rank and file.
Shopping there is half the trouble,
saving me from paying double.

Lots of imports sold from China.
Debt and deficit owed, not minor,
till trade agreements play us fair,
Mexico, Asia, here and there.
China's glad to keep on lending
cause the feds keep overspending.
Our grandkids will pay, goodness knows,
since national debt grows and grows.
We're barely paying interest now.
Step up, Obama, take a bow

Switching gears to entertainment,
patrons DO wear sloppy raiment.
Sit on a bench and rest a while,
people watch and enjoy their style.
Wally shoppers provide a view.
Many are nearly bare, it's true.
Bouncy bottoms, jelly-belly fat,
hard to tell where their waist is at.
Makes me wonder where else I'd go
to have a laugh and see the show.

Employees say they love the place.
Not couch potatoes taking space.
Got a job and making some cash.
Paying the bills, squirreling stash.
Regular folks working to live,
and don't need grief to get or give.
If something better comes along,
they'll punch the clock and bid "so long."
As for me I'll stick with Wally,
cause that's where it's at, by golly!
