The Shopping List.

The Shopping List.

A Poem by Marie

Today is Thursday morning, tomorrow shopping day

I make a list of all

I need and look forward to my pay.


There’s Nappies, Powder and Shampoo, Baby Oil and Soaps,


Cleaners, Disinfectants, Paper Towels,

(and my few ‘smokes’);

Steak for dinner Sunday, with Carrot's, Spuds and


A Haze Air Freshener for the loo, with pleasant smell to please

Rashers, Sausages, Bacon, Bread both brown and white

Toilet Tissue, Bottled Water and Cheddar Cheese that’s ‘light’;



(A new pen and a Writing Pad with multi-coloured sheets);



Comfort, Butter, Yogurt (and a pack of my favourite sweets);


Fruit and Chicken Portions, cat food for little ‘Frisky’;

A candle, Frozen Chips and a little dram of Whisky


I read the list back carefully, I think it will suffice.



I’ll go shopping nice and early, have a Coffee and Apple Slice.


I drive into ‘The Parking Lot’ and get parking where I




(Can’t help feeling something’s wrong, something I have missed).



I go into The Superstore and think aloud “Oh whist!”

I brought my bag, my purse and keys and forgot



My ‘Shopping List’!.

Ha-ha! I've done that, and it's a very bad thing when it happens. Ol' forgetful Sam will undoubtedly come home without those bananas he needed for banana pudding. (Or something like that) This entertaining little poem made me laugh.
