Another Jenny Lane Poem…

 

You’ve Got to Watch What You Buy

Down at the Old Country Store


Most items have expired,

you’ve got to check the dates

on the cans of vegetables

and the meat, especially the meat,

or anything else you might sink your teeth into.

Like what Arbutus said about Emil Pederson

running off with that girl from the power company,

Andy Evers, he bought that.

And Junie Jaskelienen, she bought what

Harvey Laanka said about me and Dingo.

He thought Dingo was my boyfriend

but Dingo is a dog.

You’ve got to watch what you buy

down at the old country store.
