But Wait There's More

The announcer jars me from my sleep
It's 1 a.m. and the TV's still on
Adjusting to reality, I slowly peep
At the infomercial.

"Incredible," says the assistant, wide-eyed.
With questions suggesting
No script has previously described
The product's considerable attributes.

"Incredible," I think
As I interrupt the barrage
And the screen returns the black ink
Of the night.

But wait there's more,
don't I want to see
All that could be in store
for one as susceptible as me?

Having adjusted my eyes
I have my answer
I'll venture on sans guide
No shipping or handling required.
