Panic Time

What should I get today,
                                                 
before we go for food we need to pray.
                           
WOW-so much to choose from,
                                       
I want lettuce and a cherry plum.
     
Hey Mary are you getting some peanuts,
                         
yes and some cold cuts.
                                                 
Ralph did you see the meat,
                                         
yes-but no pigs feet.
                                                     
Chocolate milk is so sweet,
                                             
it would be such a great treat.
                                         
Betty place the tablecloth on the floor,
                             
Hairy Joe make sure there is a lock on the door.
               
Another picnic night eating at the food bank,
                   
give thanks for this feast Frank.
                                     
After all that is what us rats do,
                                       
now take your share and chew.
                                     
Wait-do you hear footsteps,
                                           
the doors need to be checked.
                                       
Panic-the guard is a coming,
                                           
we better get a running.
