On a mini shopping spree,
Rena spies in giant print --
Buy Two, get one FREE.
A bargain shopping expert
Rena races through the store,
Clutching tight, a metal cart
Whose wheels have left the floor.
The end cap with the sign affixed
Held boxes -- pastel tinted,
And in each one, a dozen cards
'Foiled, floral printed'.
Her thrifty self concluded
Such a find would bless so many,
Though, when she sampled written words
She found there weren’t any.
"<i>Nonetheless</i>," she reasons,
"<i>I can make each one unique.
As certain need arises,
I'll just fill them with my ink.</i>"
Rena went to checkout
Content, she stood in line.
36 blank greeting cards
-- Exceptional design.
The first to be selected --
Her sister, fallen ill,
She thought until her brain hurt
'Twas creative overkill.
The card- not yet in transit
Had evolved to standard letter,
For her medicated sis was
Doing fine and feeling better.
Next, there was the birthday of
A cousin, aged nineteen.
Rena settled in her chair
And sipped on her caffeine.
Her thoughts became erratic.
The pen refused to write.
She'd consumed a pot of coffee.
Couldn't sleep throughout the night.
The next day Rena took a nap
Her energy deflated.
Woke to find she'd missed the bash
Her wishes now belated.
Rena received invite to
Attend a baby shower.
With her gift, a Hallmark Card
...Some things we should leave to the experts.
