Retail Therapy


Finding happiness in acquiring things material

Craving for objects luxurious and ethereal-

Are trappings of a shallow mind- some might say

But seriously, can anyone imagine a day

When women would stop lusting after shoes,

Clothes and jewelry, how they would address their blues-

If you took retail therapy out of the picture

Many a woman would have boredom engulf her

With nothing to splurge on for beautification

The smile that accompanies instant gratification

Would disappear, and unfortunately be replaced

By a mood so somber you would be amazed

She might indulge gastronomically, you know

The resultant weight gain could be a further blow

To her feelings of despair, setting into motion

A downward spiral, of which you had no notion

Shopping is cheaper than therapy any day

It has its own rewards that can’t be denied anyway

Apart from the things that her looks can enhance

Her eyes brighten when she spots a 75% sale by chance

On scoring a major deal, her ecstasy cannot be described

More effective than any antidepressant ever prescribed

So when women shop, please do not complain

Shopping keeps the economy in balance and women sane!
