(In The Grocery Line.)


I talked to him in his carrier,

As cute as a button was he…

But when I helped his Mom find a can

His older brother sized up me.

The older brother, a young boy

Finding pepperoni a place…

Among the candy where it had been,

Turned–this oldster to face.

His Mom had bought him a toy that he showed,

Proudly from its little bag…

So much love in his little grin

As he helped Mommy carry the swag!
