Ode to Joy

On First Looking into Lowe’s Home Improvement Center

Much have I traveled in the aisles of orange

And many good displays and endcaps seen;

Round many tool departments have I been

With power drills whose prices made me cringe.

Then went I into Lowe’s, where, I’d been told,

I’d find all I could want, at prices fair –

A wider range of goods — and where

Adjustable receptacles are sold.

Then felt I like a man released from jail,

When off they strike his shackles and his chains;

To further lift my soul, Lowe’s had a sale –

Ten percent off covers for my drains!

And prices down to very near wholesale –

And speedy service on the checkout lanes!
