ROLLS OF DELIGHT

pt_edit

In the supermarket there is one aisle
That is my favorite by a mile.

It’s not where they sell sugary snacks,
Soda, cereal or have the toy racks.

It’s near the sponges, past the Kleenex,
A cottony wonder from floor to apex:

It’s Toilet Paper Mountain, in all its glory,
Beside Paper Towel Castle,
which everyone must see.

But for me, I’m afraid, seeing’s not enough.
I have to scale these towers of puff.

Mom and Dad don’t like when I climb,
They put me back in the cart every time.

Then soon they’re in the distance, my grocery store friends:
The Paper Towel Castle and Toilet Paper Mountain.

And my thoughts turn to plotting for the next time
That to those absorbent summits I can climb.
