The Pits

A family vacation or short get away for a weekend of ease,

Just to do whatever you please.

You chose the healthy snacks for your children to enjoy.

But always remember, oh boy.

Fifty miles have at last gone by,

when from the back seek you hear this cry!

The small child sees the blue of a hospital sign,

You pull over to see about just why?

After investigating and worrying, what did you find?

An empty bag of prunes! Did you all share this bag?” I asked once again.

“Just me”, mom,”I am just trying to hold my tummy in.”

We assured her it would come out in the end.

Whatever you plan may not always fit,

sometimes life seems like the pits.
