Mom, Daughter, Creature And Dad - In That Order - Poem by Raj Arumugam

busy, busy are the shops
and everybody pours in
into the mall

Mom and daughter are shopping
and the debonair mom declares:
This year, this fur coat
is what I'm getting for Xmas!
We'll come back tomorrow
with my credit card

But mom, says the conscientious daughter
this is not synthetic
Some poor creature must scream in pain
so you can wear this coat

Don't worry, sweetie, says mom
Your dad won't get the statement
till 30 days from now
