There must be a better way


The Odious Shopping Cart

By Elton Camp

I circle through the parking lot
Then an empty space I spot

I’m just about to pull in
A cart’s blocking it again

Though the corral is nearby
To put it away, they didn’t try

Once I get into the store
There’s a struggle I abhor

All the carts are stuck tight
To separate one is a fight

When I try to roll ahead
“Let’s go right,” it said

Finally I get to the aisle
There to have another trial

Woman and cart in the way
It’s in the middle she’ll stay

Ingredients to slowly read
Gives to others no heed

Finally, back to the parking lot
There, what shock I got

On my car there’s a deep dent
Where a run-away cart went

Those odious carts I again curse
To them, I am much averse
