A LITTLE BOY
(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!
