Demands For A Chocolate Coating

Those who had mindlessly in their whims binged...
Now find themselves cringing,
At the thought of losing their credit status.
And the loss of habitual mall spending sprees.

A reality feared has come too near.
With feelings of being cursed.
Without opportunities to rehearse,
The worse as it appears on the horizon.

Periodic trips to visit urban blight...
No longer excites those on these voyages.
Many now see themselves as addicts needing a fix.
Lifestyles for them have changed.
And desperation sits thick...
Without demands for a chocolate coating,
To spread over it!

Those who had mindlessly in their whims binged...
Now find themselves cringing,
At the thought of losing their credit status.
And the loss of habitual mall spending sprees.
With the usual shopping in snobbing glee.

A reality feared has come too near.
With feelings of being cursed.
Without opportunities to rehearse the worse.
And no time from it to split...
To rush and nurse their grieving disbeliefs.
