The Christmas season had come indeed
to a Connecticut village called Milkweed
where the children were happy spending their time
playing their games and singing their rhymes.
Their parents, however, as I will have written
by the shine and sparkle bugs had been bitten.
As if in a fever they were eager to spend
more than they earned without any end.
Each family was determined, it was perfectly plain,
to outdo the others and showed their disdain
for any item that was lower in price
than what their neighbors had snapped up in a trice.
You may well wonder how this came to be
in a village as peaceful as peaceful could be.
The reason is I’m sorry to say
because of one man who would have his way.
Mr. Simon P. Gruntly of Crassville Mall
wanted more profits, wanted them all.
He wouldn’t be satisfied until he could get
much bigger profits than he’d ever had yet.
So he started a contest with prizes for who-all
would spend the most at the Crassville Mall.
