Waiting for Delivery
Ordered some books for my grandson
On the Friday that recently passed,
Expecting a next-day delivery
Since Amazon gets things done fast.
Got a notice the order was processed,
Then a follow-up it would be late,
So instead of the 15th arrival,
I was given a different date.
Told my son to remain on the lookout
For by Sunday or Monday it should
Be deposited on their front doorstep
But I started to doubt if it would.
By this morning, when checking the order,
It said, “Sorry, your books may be lost.
Please reorder or ask for a refund.”
Somehow somebody’s signals got crossed.
I will try once again but I realized
Just how spoiled I’ve gotten to be,
Yet I hope my grandson’s disappointment
Is with Amazon rather than me!
