Twas the Night Before Bonanza…

A reprised and revised poem from the Bonanza archives!

(Can you find the new stanza?!)
Twas the night before Bonanza;/
Throughout Canterbury Park,/
Hustle and bustle continued/
Well into the dark!/
When finally, the Ki Shop was totally stuffed/
The masking-taped floors were polished and buffed/
Vendors were finished with gilding their spots/
The building stood silent, awaiting the lots/
Of Early Bird shoppers, and then all the masses/
Of vintage love-lovers, brandishing passes/
To enter this heaven, the World Series of Junk!/
Then leave oh-so-happy with it all stuffed in their trunks!
A new Expo Center replaces “the tent”/
With amenities including a “ladies” and “gents”!/
Joining the great Bloody Mary’s you’ll find at the bar/
is the “Happy Junker” sangria in a cool Mason Jar!/
We can’t wait to see you! It’s all oh-so heady/
Annie Sloan Unfolded stands at the ready/
To pass on some tips re: amazing Chalk Paint®! /
The Bonanza is rocking’ (sedate it just ain’t!)
Fabulous vendors! Even more fabulous swag!/
And three days to enjoy it, lest your energy lag!/
So get ready to shop and to smile and to laugh/
And Happy Bonanza from the entire JB staff!
Kim
