Twas the night before Christmas
when all through the house
the husband was sent scurrying
pleaded to by his spouse
“We need bananas!” Meghan screamed
For our Christmas Day chocolate chip/banana pancakes
breakfast to be redeemed.
“But no grocery stores are open” I said
I’d have to go somewhere else instead
On empty streets I drove, in the dark of night
with nary an “OPEN” sign in sight!
I visited convenience stores and gas stations
who only provided fruitless frustrations!
Tiredly searching where to get bananas on Christmas Eve?!
A remote Walgreens held my reprieve.
“We have bananas here,” said the clerk truthful
And my Christmas eve became fortuitously fruitful!
So, in Meghan’s stocking hung a most welcome, appeeling sight
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!
