By Sally

Prices come
Prices go
we look here
we look there
for the prices we compare

Here I go to buy my needs
checking coupons and sales
and slowly declare – is this where I fail?

To my pocket
the prices wail
the holes they make
empty my pockets

The prices are soaring
like a rocket
we don’t see
as they slowly rise
right before our eyes

But what can we do
we proclaim
for sure we need
our precious grain

I need not go on any longer
my pocket is not getting
any stronger.
