The Last Ten Minutes

Today we went to
The farmer's market in town
To sell granola

Clouds stood by to watch
But they didn't bother us
They looked at onesies

The market was slow
The buyers didn't buy much
The day went slowly

So we played Scrabble
I beat Bryan and Jenny
I really creamed them

Jenny left early
She went to be with family
Bryan and I stayed

We packed up at two
Then the rain started to fall
It began to pour

Cue the wild wind
Canopies began to fly
We covered things fast

We had good neighbors
Who helped us hold things down tight
And fold things up fast

Two branches fell down
But our neighbor was okay
We hurried faster

I ran to the car
To and fro I ran with things
Everything was wet

Another branch fell
It was the size of a car
And it fell on top of one

The wind was so mad
It vanquished the burritos
And the hair ribbons

We scrambled inside
And shut the doors of the car
And sighed with relief

Windshield wipers flashed
We cautiously hurried home
And out of that storm

  1. Oh, my, oh my...a tree fell on a car?? Yikes! I'm so glad you're ok!

    My favorite lines: "Cue the wild wind," and "Windshield wipers flashed."

    Poor burritos. Poor hair ribbons.
