Dear Amazon,

Your customers  have spoken…why haven’t you? We were faithful, we had our Christmas shopping all planned out…no standing in line…just sitting online….finding everything we wanted…we loved you!  We didn’t do anything to deserve your silent treatment.  All we wanted to know was why you were peddling and profiting from a pedophile guide ?  Everyone said we were threatening to boycott….this is no threat.  We know you couldn’t let go either.  We tried to close our accounts but you kept us hanging on..waiting for some word…nothing.

We wanted to know if was true, we couldn’t believe it, we had to find out the hard way.  You took the stance that it was censorship and that if we didn’t like it we could make our own purchasing decisions and we have.  Your silence is deafening…and telling….so I guess this is goodbye…. thanks for good times…I can find better places to shop…you’re not the ONLY online shopping available.

Your Former Loyal Shoppers


Farewell ungrateful traitor,
Farewell my perjured swain,
Let never injured creature
Believe a man again.
The pleasure of possessing
Surpasses all expressing,
But ’tis too short a blessing,
And love too long a pain.

‘Tis easy to deceive us
In pity of your pain,
But when we love you leave us
To rail at you in vain.
Before we have descried it,
There is no bliss beside it,
But she that once has tried it
Will never love again.

The passion you pretended
Was only to obtain,
But when the charm is ended
The charmer you disdain.
Your love by ours we measure
Till we have lost our treasure,
But dying is a pleasure,
When living is a pain.

John Henry Dryden
