Tired parents, crabby kids,
Crowding aisles, flipping lids,
Dropping crayons on the floor,
"Mommy! Daddy! I want more!"
Filling up a shopping cart
At the mega-discount mart,
Racks up sales to make you spin
Or hire out your next-of-kin.
Kindergartners clutch their lists:
"Is there anything we've missed?"
Teens and middle schoolers roar,
"Why'd we come to this lame store?"
And yet, this errand is a boon,
For schools will ring their bells quite soon.
Parents gladly cough up funds
Because the summer break is done!
Moody Mondays ("back to school")
Slice of Life Sunday (“A naughty moment of my youth,” “2x4=8, the teacher I most appreciate” or “writer’s choice”)
Sunday Scribblings (“observations”)
