When coffee costs more than $1
And gas costs nearly 4
But cereal’s on sale 2 for $6!
Don’t forget that’s two combos at the drive-in next door.
When grapefruit is 10 for $10
And eggs are a dozen for 3
Blink to forget the price on that lettuce
This ain’t a Whole Foods in my kitchen pantry.
Cooking for fuel; Empty list, empty tummy
Deserts have more vegetation than my local grocery.
An apple? A tomato? Can’t put food on the table
So we drive to a place where extra fries come free.
