Happy shopping experience

Toys-Are-Us store just ain't for me
A topic store is what I'd rather see
If I had my druthers or whatever
Sometimes out of snappy or clever,
I resort to desperate mind mining
Bright ideas are few and declining
Just grab a cart and off you go
For when ideas are running low
Blue-light specials for a humorless day,
For when your muse just goes away
A Rodney Dangerfield pop-up book
May catch your eye for a second look,
"A guy walk into a bar'-type punchline
Would work for me; be dandy and fine
Or, a whole scenario upon the page,
Scenario Beast is loosed from its cage
Original idea or not, I'll take to checkout,
Yeah, that'd be groovy, without a doubt!

It seems to me that you are not lacking in inventory Mike. Good poem.
