Dad’s been checking the cupboards

the fridge and freezer too

Soon he’ll be driving the road down –

the one that leads into town

See the cupboards need refilling

with fish and meat and soups

as well as other tinned favourites

like Beans with Sausage and Spaghetti hoops

And Soap and Shampoo need a buying

along with mouthwash and pastes

and cleaning stuff and bin bags

to clear up the weeks waste

And so he knows there’s nothing he missed

he’s put it on paper – a handy list

so when he’s looking for summat we need

he can find it and give us a top up feed
