Grocery Shopping–Aargg!

Entering store, pick a cart that doesn’t squeak

Doesn’t stick to your hands either—eek eek!

Flip the seat thingee up so food stays in cart

Adjust glasses, review shopping list to start

.

Proceed first to the prepared foods aisles

Cereals, popcorn, pastas, sauces in vials

Bottled water/juices, peanut butter and such

Jams, crackers, and relishes, though not much

.

Then on toward the frozen food lane

Fish, veggies, and ice cream retain

Next are fresh meats, like beef and chicken

Now to the dairy, for milk and cheese, I thicken

.

Lastly breeze through the produce aisle

Lettuce, carrots, and onions so mild

Apples, oranges, tomatoes and dill

Mushrooms, bananas, and broccoli until . . .

.

You find yourself at the fast-paced check out

And return home . . .

without bread or your brussel sprouts!

.

Have a good day!
