Shopping For A Bowl - (a rhyme by tom balistreri)

We went shopping for a bowl.
Then we bought some matching plates.
Then we got a new table,
for the old one wasn't great.

The walls could use improving,
so then we bought some kitchen paint.
I thought about the total,
it made me feel a little faint.

The old lighting wouldn’t do.
It would look worse with these new things.
So we bought new light fixtures,
and some shelving that could swing.

I paid the bill and watched,
my bank account go dry.
Then I bought some tissues,
so I could dry my eyes.

It feels like I've thrown
my money in hole.
But it’s typical of what happens,
when we go to buy a bowl.
