Singing The Big Box Blues

Bigger and bigger the Big Box stores
Can anyone navigate these anymore?
Big…Big…Big Box Blues

Going in circles mile after mile
Never encounter an employee who smiles
Big…Big…Big Box Blues

Searching in vain through endless aisles
Trying to locate the paper towels
Big…Big…Big Box Blues

‘Did you find what you need?’ they chortle with glee
Oblivious to the frustration in me
Big…Big…Big Box Blues

‘Paper or plastic?’ as if they care
I’m ready to tear out my very last hair
Big…Big…Big Box Blues

Check myself out and bolt for the door
To return to this place, nevermore
