Woulda, Shoulda, Couldn’t

shutterstock_250120381Wanting and doing are two different things,

And cash in the bank is what thriftiness brings!

But rainy day savings can hardly compare

With a new pair of shoes I am longing to wear

Today, not tomorrow!

Must I beg, steal or borrow?

I look, I lust, I rationalize hard,

Then open my purse and pull out my card.

I know it’s wrong, I know that I shouldn’t –

I tried to resist them, yet truly, I couldn’t!

  1. Ah yes indeed!! What a difficult decision when it comes to buying gorgeous shoes !! Your poem was adorable and very witty! Beg, steal or borrow is necessary for shoe-lovers like me too! Though the stealing part is the least desirable of the three:)))
    Hope all is well with you! I’m back from a summer break and work beckons me back to the office:( oh well!
    All my very best!
