Do it Again Sometime


A day out shopping

Such excitement

Best friends

Changing rooms, coffee

Bulging bags, lunch

More bags, arms being stretched

Natter natter

Celebrating our success

Dead on our feet

Do it again sometime


But that was then


Shopping now is an anxious word

Filled with thoughts I’d rather

not spend time on

Meticulous planning follows

How will I? Will there be?

A curse on the day

Desperately finding out

It’s rather like taking exams


Will I be able to park?

Sticks, scooter or chair?

What if I can’t get up the kerb?

Go by myself?

Take a friend?

Persuade the family?


Outside the toy shop

My daughter asks me which superhero

I’d like to be

I think for a moment


One that can walk

Background: Remembering the fun I had shopping with friends years ago, compared to what it is now
