Ode to Wal Mart

Here I sit on Wal Mart’s lot
Kinda tired, feeling shot.
Lots of drivin’, body’s crampin’
Thank God for this freebee campin’.
Lots of conflict in my head
Go to Wall-Mart; go to bed?
Dried up food I ate before
Cheap, hot chicken in the store,
Wife is cranky, she did yell,
Go get a chicken, or go to (Target?)

Six dollar chickens can’t be beat
Milk and donuts for a treat.
Don’t forget the beer and wine,
chips and salsa, would be fine.
Get some canned food for the cat
and a brand new bathroom mat.
A couple towels, a bar of soap,
A nice big bottle of minty Scope.
The old TV is really crappy,
get a new one, make it snappy.
Buy a Cosmo magazine,
Orders from the Wal-Mart queen.

So off I go to get my dinner,
Who’s the loser, who’s the winner?
Lots of stuff, I know I need it
Six buck chicken, who can beat it.
Two big baskets, bags and boxes,
I wonder just how far Fort Knox is.
I feel just like a lottery winner,
$800 for a chicken dinner?
Take a tip from camping scholars,
KOA – just 50 dollars.

But I still like out Walmart stops. They tell us to park far enough away that I don't make the walk. ;-))

I don't know about the rest of you but we always find so many things I did'nt know we need that the stop is always worth while.

The money spent at the campground doesn't taste as good as the barbecued chicken or last as long as the rest of the ESSENTIAL purchases at Wallyworld.

In our experience, Walmart camping has never been free, same for Cracker Barrel.
