He came to the checkout line,

A couple ahead and behind…

Was his turn

And then learned

He’d surpassed his credit line!

The woman in back offered

To pay the difference erred…

A bagful returned

He accepted her terms,

Thank you’s and God Bless you’s aired!

She said was a Mother’s Day gift,

I told the cashier I’d wait to sip…

My soda at home

With the Missus alone,

But I’m gratefull her hand tipped!
