The Grocery List

By Henry Lowenstern

I carefully make up a list
of grocery items that I've missed,
but then I find
I left the list behind,
I'm at the store and I am p----d!

YES! I do it all the time! Thank you for posting this great short poem!

I'm at the store and I am pleased?
I'm at the store and I am primed?
I*m at the store and I am pressed,
Pushed, Hmm, I wonder what he meant by this-t.

Henry-
You have such a talent to say what is so universal amongst us elderberries, in such a short manner!!

Henry:
Clever, as usual!

A list left behind
Can boggle one's mind
But what can be worse?
Is leaving one's purse!

Luckily discovered before checkout... whew! 😊
