O Amazon, How I Love Thee

"O Amazon, How I Love Thee" by Elizabeth Scalia

Amazon's unofficial motto for gift buying!
O Amazon,
At Christmastime
indeed I pledge my gratitude

Your canny stock
and shipping speed
begs my undying gratitude

Of Almond Paste
the local shops had
a most plundered inventory

Rainbow cookies
without the stuff
would bring this cook no glory

You shipped it
(overnight no less)
and for a mere three dollars

Thus insuring
a dessert met
with gustatory hollers

O Amazon,
your service doth
set fine new precedents

True service
we do sorely need
Would you run for President?

H/T The Anchoress (Elizabeth Scalia herself!)


  1. Amazon saves me every Christmas! And what a great and funny tribute. Love it.
