'Twas the night before Valentine's and all through Walmart,
the masses were stirring - last minute shopping, no doubt.
The Beef and I waded through the crowds with great care,
knowing that check out would be more than a nightmare.
Candy hearts, chocolates and cards in disarray,
due to the late coming myriad today.
All this last minute Valentining leaves me frantic,
"Plan ahead, plan ahead!" was my cry most tantric.
"I just want some soup," I thought most frustrated,
procrastination makes this crowd seem too over rated.
Now we'll have to stand in line for 30 minutes!
"This is like Christmas!" Beef said in disbelief,
and we both stood in line feeling all too well the defeat.
We checked out our soup, chocolate and anti-freeze
and walked out of the store feeling much more at ease.
What is the moral of this little ditty?
"Those who wait to buy their Valentine gifts leave much to pitty."
