Hand's Off My Purse - Poem by Shelly Price
What's in my purse you ask,
I'll have to look and see.
Usually the same ole crap,
but nothing would surprise me.
A wallet for my credit cards,
to show that I have clout.
Then there's two bic lighters,
just in case one runs out.
I have a half pack of cigarettes,
a reminder to stop at a store.
Then there are sixteen ink pens,
do you think I should carry more?
On to the next compartment,
I have a speeding ticket to pay.
I have a great story behind that,
but I'll save it for another day.
My favorite pair of sunglasses,
they have their own special place.
Then I have correction fluid,
just in case I need to erase.
I have tweezers...
one, two, three, four different pair.
All of them are needed tools,
to remove one stubborn chin hair.
I have fifty nine dollars in cash,
four bills that will require much more.
I have a variety of shopping cards,
just in case I stop at my fav. store.
I have two debit banking cards,
a checkbook I need to update.
Business cards for all my clients,
a piece of chocolate I never ate.
I have a sharpie, a highlighter,
a mini stapler that doesn't work.
A half filled out complaint card,
about a worthless store clerk.
Then a new cell phone case,
that I forgot I even had.
Coupons for the grocery store,
all expired, isn't that sad.
Then I have two veteran Id cards,
both pictures make me look old.
Seven casino gaming cards,
three silver cards, the rest gold.
Thank you for asking me
what it is I had in my purse.
The contents are quit necessary
and could have been much worse.
