Just One Thing ~ #sol18

It’s National Poetry Month!  This poem was inspired by a trip to Walgreens my daughter and I made tonight.

Just One Thing

Went to the store

for just one thing –

Was that all we bought?

What do you think?

Hair ties,

A Hairbrush,

Hair clips in hand.

Body wash,


Chapstick, on man!

What did we come for?

Oh that’s right –

Vitamins for me

Vitamins for B.

Oooh what’s this?

One more thing I see

Cold pack wraps,

one for each knee.

Went to the store

for just one thing,

110 dollars and 3 bags –

  1. Love the poem! 🙂 Can anyone ever go to a store for just one thing, and return with just one thing? I suppose that there must be someone somewhere who can, but it’s not anyone that I know. 🙂 ~JudyK

  2. What a great poem! I love how you found a way to create a poem – and not just write a slice – about something like a trip to the store! I know how that goes though! Though I tend to do this at just about any store, my favorite to do this at is Target. Ugh! I find EVERYTHING I need (but don’t need) there! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
