S is for Shopping
Shopping list is like a to do list
Traipsing round the supermarket
Up and down the aisles back and forth
Shuffling and stopping looking and reaching
In and out, up and down, this way and that
Is that in my cupboard?
Do I really need more baked beans?
Out of the trolley on to the conveyor belt
Beep, beep, push and pack
Hope the ice cream doesn’t melt
Insert your card, remember your pin
Anybody watching, move your body to the side
Pack the trolley try and push it through the automatic doors
Glad to leave the hubbub of the store
Weaving in and out of the cars parking and leaving
Opening the boot and turning to get a bag
Oh no, the trolley is rolling down the road
Grabbing the handle, handbag flying
Groaning and moaning
Back to square one and home again.
It’s all done now until next week
Groundhog Day again with a few nips and tweaks.
