I made my long, long shopping list,

an expression of the goods I wished

to purchase to support good health –

grit teeth, take flight and stride in stealth

toward the bus stop, hurry on,

only to find my bus had gone –

a twenty minute walk or wait?

I strolled back through my garden gate

unlocked the door and hurried in

escaping rain and roaring wind,

there’s plenty here to make a supper

all kinds of staples, bread and butter –

good health can wait another day

I can’t afford it anyway!
