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!
