Occasional light verse, mostly political. If you're looking for a certain cold medicine, try here. But we can put you to sleep cheaper.

Retailing gossip

H. Lee Scott, the Walmart chair,
Would love to be adored,
And now is trying hard to wear
The cloak of Henry Ford.
"Our customers need higher pay
To buy the things we sell --
Let Congress raise the floor today,
And all will turn out well."

Since Walmart jobs exceed the floor,
This seems unhypocritical;
Yet Costco pays a whole lot more --
So is it just political?
"Our shoppers should be better paid ...."
(Our workers surely won't,
For state-supported Medicaid
Provides them what we don't

You've said that wages should be upped;
A fine idea you've got!
But if our scorn should not erupt,
Then up yours, H. Lee Scott!
