Black Friday

I woke up early today

to get a really good deal

left behind the family

to catch the perfect steal.

Drove through the dark

with the rain beating down,

a wintry mix collecting

upon the icy ground.

Then, just a mile from the store,

I met a patch of black ice

the steal of the day was my life

not hardly worth the price.
