One-Ply on the End Cap by Raymond A. Foss

Oh it was too easy, in my rush
after the traffic to the bank,
the banter of the customers
marking time by the rope line
nothing so pretty as velvet
waiting under the fluorescent bulbs
by the self-service express line
A short shopping list,
added to by a quick phone call
heading to the frozen treats
A little too easy, the giant bargain pack
toilet paper on the end cap
Quick grab, move to the treats,
What, no cherry, oh well,
sugar free may work
to the fruit, a real savings (sweet),
to the aisle, register
Drive home, in triumph,
a successful run, nonetheless
Let me see the paper, she said
a bit too ominously
It was one-ply on the end cap,
again. Nuts!
