12 Bottles

All the bottles you will find
Sitting in a row
Yours will be the multiples
I’ll be sure to know!

Looking in your shower
There on the shelves
Twelve bottles of shampoo
Left by …elves.

You didn’t put them there
You’re totally unaware
There are so many
You use …hardly any.

I laugh …to myself
So many …it’s true
Forgetting what you have
And always …buying new.

Two years ago, when I visited Mom in her home in N.Y., those 12 bottles were in her bathroom shower. I was amazed, everytime she went to the store, she’d forget what she had and just keep buying STUFF!
