Ultimate Mother’s Day Shopping Experience
(A Father’s POV)
It started off so very well,
and I was feeling incredibly swell.
Then came the stomping of the feet,
and I was rushed off right out of my seat.
From there on I had no more control,
and I can tell you this was no leisurely afternoon stroll.
We were up and we were off like you would not believe,
shopping and racking up bills like I could not conceive!
I was practically flying through those walls,
hitting and haggling at various, vibrant stalls.
The bags, they kept increasing at a steady rate,
my health and appearance were looking in a right terrible state.
Still we carried on a speedily going,
chatting, choosing and not any hint of slowing.
At one point I thought I had roller skates attached to my feet,
we were whizzing off so fast down those shop-strewn streets.
Then came a small, faint voice asking if we were nearly done?
It was clear from the little shoppers’ actions that Oh No there was yet more fun…
I was whisked past seemingly endless and packed product rails,
the resulting purchases mounting in successful sales!
Beneath it all was a puffed out unrecognisable me,
begging for a sit down and perhaps a cup of tea!
