A Prime Holiday Remix

The holidays are upon us and the pressure of adapting a holiday limerick into something clever is weighing heavy on me. Adding to my creative anxiety is an untimely bout with Covid which has robbed me of my sense of smell, taste, and ability to leave my room. Apparently, it also clouds your thinking, which may be evident with my attempt to poke fun at one of the largest, most successful companies in the world.

Feeling festive? Press play.

Read to the tune of UP ON THE HOUSETOP…

Up on the laptop just in time
Out jumps good ol Amazon Prime

Down through the driveway, it’s no frills
And quite suddenly, lots of bills

Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn’t go? Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on your laptop, click, click, click
Down through the street comes your brown box pick

Two weeks out, supply chain hell
Can’t get gifts, it makes you yell

All my stuff off the coast it lies
Makes me want to scream and cry

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go? Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on your laptop, click, click, click
Down through the street comes your brown box pick

Next comes your groceries, what a sham
Looks like your fruit has turned to jam

The driver that drops off stops and laughs
He ate your cookies and hasn’t had a bath

Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn’t go? Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on your laptop, click, click, click
Down through the street comes your brown box pick

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
