Out of at Home

She sent him out to get some eggs, milk and a bottle of their favorite
She didn’t mention what else they were out of at home

The market was alive with happenings. He bumped into their dentist
Who said remind her to floss then tossed a box of red candies in his cart

The gent at the meat counter said none today?
He returned a disappointed no and eyed a young lady in line

Flowers for the wife? said a voice from a stand
He glanced at the list and shook his head without a look up

He would do the least and get by
Let her no room to point or accuse

So he filled up the basket with the things she had asked for
And went back to what they were out of at home
