April 25th — Poem A Day

Super Market

Grocery shopping I must go,
Got to get some food, you know.
Here’s a magazine. Here’s a book.
At the videos, I must look.
I simply must browse through the wine,
To sip upon while we dine.
Next stop — one of my favorite places,
Full of flowers and exotic vases.
One isle over I find cool toys,
To entertain both girls and boys.
Toothpaste, deodorant and some soap,
To keep me fresh and sweet, I hope.
At the check stand is the candy.
They put it there to keep it handy.
To the clerk, I chat real nice,
And ask her for a bag of ice.
I leave the store in a happy mood —
Yet to realize I’ve bought no food.


Poetic Asides, Day 25
Prompt: write a poem about an event


  1. Melli — I just made a shopping list and am about to head out. I predict I will still forget something, and I’ll come home with something not on the list.

  2. It seems no matter how I try, I always come home to find something I’ve forgotten or didn’t know we needed. And I always come home with more than was on my list, too.

    It is true the stores sell so much more than food now. No wonder we get distracted!!

    1. I left mine right here beside my computer. You know what really boggles my mind about forgetting the milk? I remembered the cottage cheese and butter — which is right beside the milk!
