Window Shopper


Today is mine for spoils
Shopping for love I do
Not short, not too tall
Just the right size for me

Today is mine for spoils
Shopping for a means of movement
Not on foot, not by air
Just the right type for me

Today will be mine for spoils
A big house and two cars in the lot
One wife, one son and a daughter
Today I remain a broke shopper
This bill-board well designed for a pauper

My shopping list is full
My shopping basket is full
My pocket is full too - with holes
Today is the wrong day to be spoilt

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
