No More Two for One Days

Walking into the thrift store
Besieged by a crowd of old ladies
Seeing it’s a two for one day
Ah yes, two for one days at the Thrift Store
I remember and smile, thinking how much
my wife’s mother would have loved this
Two for one days, Ken
and a big grin
Then joining the other grey heads
bobbing up and down the aisles
Two for one days
and a mob at the door
Two for one days
and a hobbling rush down the aisles
Two for one days
and old ladies in their glory
Only now
Our old lady
She can’t go
The entrance
looks all blurry
as I walk up
I turn away
Can’t go in now;
Crying.
