Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Summer Days)

The summer was free, the summer was fair-

To say it is about over, I could not dare.

.

The sleeping late, the swims we took-

Still working on reading another book.

.

The family picnics, the vacations we spent-

Summer was going to last forever, it was

Heaven sent.

.

The Grandparents visited us, and gave

the season a special feel-

The summer air got hot and stood still.

.

And before too long we were school shopping-

Hints of back to school were suddenly dropping.

.

The summer was free, the summer was fair-

To say it is about over, I could not dare.

As a rule many of us share-

Childhood memories of being out of school, and experiencing summer fare.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 956 (The Customer Is Always Right)

Not to be taken light-

But, the customer is always right.

.

Even if they are wrong, they are still right-

No point, in anyone putting up a fight.

.

For they are like gems, and the business

prospects are at hand-

This is good business, throughout the land.

.

Let the customers be rude and act like children-

To pamper them over and over again.

.

For they know that if you do not treat them so-

Some other place, to shop, is where they will go.

.

To hold one’s breath, until the transaction is done-

Then one can sit back, and laugh, yeah, it’s time to have some fun.

.

Not to be taken light-

But, the customer is always right.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Summer Is About Here)

It’s clear-

That summertime is about here.

.

The temps are on the rise-

The blooms have grown in size.

.

The vacation plans have been laid-

The lemonade is now regularly made.

.

The kids want to go to the pool-

The adults also want to stay cool.

.

Use of the A/C is going strong-

And will follow all summer long.

.

It’s clear-

That summertime is about here.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Lock Me In Or Lock You Out )

There was something going on that I had to keep out-

So buying many locks was the given route.

.

I put locks on the windows and locks on the doors-

I put locks in the attic, I double nailed the floors.

.

I put cameras and locks in the overstuffed kitchen-

I double checked them all over and over again.

.

I put locks on the inside as well as the outside-

I put many more that I could find on the inside.

.

But the problem is that what I wanted to keep away-

I’d still have to confront on some upcoming day.

.

For what I was trying to lock out was not what I thought-

A delusion is what I had eventually bought.

.

For what I was running from was really me-

And until I realized that fact I’d never be free.

.

In the meantime another lock to install-

Perhaps on that door or against that wall.

.

There was something going on that I had to keep out-

So buying many locks was the given route.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Eyes In The Grocery Store)

I went into the grocery store-

I had a list, but I wanted more.

.

I saw the cookies and the cake-

It got all over me, for goodness sake.

.

I saw the canned meat and tamales-

I saw the veggies and my favorite peas.

.

I saw the seafood and the bread-

I kept on shopping, I forged ahead.

.

I saw the candies and all the fruit on the stand-

There were also plenty of items in the frozen

section on hand.

.

I wondered why I was so interested in everything

in the store-

I don’t generally act this way, I usually shop, with

list on hand, in much bore.

.

And then I remembered that I had skipped lunch-

Not a bite did I have not even a munch.

.

One is not supposed to go to the store hungry, it

doesn’t work out-

For you have to eye everything, and I mean

everything without a doubt.

.

I went into the grocery store-

I had a list, but I wanted more.
