Grocery Shopping for Old Folks

Shopping at the grocery store

Is now a major daily chore.

No more pretzels, no more chips

Will ever pass through these lips.

Nuts and apples are no more,

Chewing with dentures makes me sore.

Fiber bars and lots of bran

Is what I eat whenever I can.

My bowels are slow, I cannot go

And so I spend a lot of dough

On laxatives I have to take

To unclog the “pipes” for goodness sake!

Can’t drink caffeine, can’t have meat,

No more ice cream for a treat.

Avoid the salt and sugar too…

What are old folks supposed to do?
