Pedestrian Rush Hour

Bargains galore,
another mall
collapses into itself.
Everything that’s left
was unwanted at any price.
But now, marked up
they soar,
Helium balloons
headed for the stratosphere
then higher still
for the ‘out of business sale’.
Discounted,
the balloon
is losing air.
Crowds line up
to pick the bones
never realizing
they’re getting nothing
for something
and giving up
everything.
