The Quest

They came in droves and they filled the store,

Faces straight, they were on a quest.

Carts overflowing, non-perishables,

That they’d safely keep in their nest.

An innocent act, at first it seemed,

But some… oh they failed the test.

They bought, and they bought, and they piled it HIGH,

Leaving nothing, not a stitch, for the rest.

    • Oh I bet! I asked the checker at Vons how she was (just being polite) and she looked at me kind of funny. I think she was thinking “how do you THINK I’m doing?!” The lines were so long. I feel for you and hope it gets better real soon! For everyone’s sake. And yes about bringing out the worst. Sad.
