Back to School

Back to School –
A Poetic Pondering of Pricey Proportions

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!

  1. This is cute and sing-songy. I loved it. Mine is here. I wrote it before the prompt, so it isn't marked with the slice of life icon. Sticks & Stones

  2. it's all such a chore, but your verse sounds quite fun - that intrinsic reward of school starting soon is a great motivator!!!
