A Fool and His Money

Better late than never is what I'm saying today.  I didn't do my flashback post yesterday, so I'm doing it now.  This was something I wrote while writing for The Game Board 5 years ago today and it is a poem.
A Fool and His Money
by: AlienCG December 1, 2003Welcome to the season of happiness and joy Where every child dreams of getting that new toy The malls are too crowded to get in to shop The easy way is on the web, so in there our cash we'll drop We went to B&N and Amazon.com Neither site had it, our plan would soon bomb Here's a site that looks quite good, but I never heard it's name But they have the toy we're looking for, it's really all the same Enter in the credit card and my money they did take Six weeks later, still no gift, this really takes the cake I got my bill and lo and behold charges have racked up A set of clubs, a diamond ring and a Star Wars collector cup A few computers, a Rolex watch and a real mink stole A leather coat, a CD player and a even a garden troll Some fine cigars, baseball cards and a hockey stick A brand new truck to drive around, what an awful trick They bought this stuff on my card just the other day I owe ten thousand dollars and I now I have to pay My life is ruined, my credit shot, what am I going to do I called the cops, they couldn't help, the guy was in Peru I got scammed, it's too late now, for me but not for you You have a chance to stop it now before you're in my boat too Don't give out your info to anyone, without first checking well If you don't follow my advice you will wind up in hell So this ends my story, of tales sad, but true It may happen, it may not, the choice is up to you For this to happen to anyone it seems a kick in the ass Don't let it happen and you'll have a Merry Christmas
Hard to believe that this post is 5 years old.  I feel like I just wrote it yesterday.  Next week I will be moving up one year to 2004 and after that I will be posting an all-time favorite.
