So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people … Ecclesiastics 8: 15
A Perfect Cure
After dropping the kids to school,
Betty bumped into a friend,
She said “I’m quitting chores today,
They drive me round the bend”.
Her friend said “yes, I feel the same,
Shall we pop to town?
We’ll grab a bargain and do lunch,”
A perfect cure when feeling down.
They headed for the Sales,
Betty loved to buy new shoes,
But with so many different styles,
It was difficult to choose.
She spotted a gorgeous handbag,
Trying to justify the reason,
To wander from a ‘Sale’ rail,
To the section marked ‘New Season’.
They browsed; tried on and chatted,
Went for lunch at Pizzaria,
On ordering a second Latte,
Realised time was drawing near.
They’d shared such fun and laughter,
Exchanged a moan and groan,
But as Betty walked towards the school,
She felt contentment to be Home.
