And speak

Who will you choose?

The words, “sit, speak, stand” had been playing in my mind. This poetry is playing with words and acts as a metaphor to make a contrast between those who just say without actions and those who is full of actions then speak out.

Go Down

In the supermarket while queuing for the cashier
Hip is tossing wriggling on the trolley basket
With hands holding onto the front thin bar
Tossing head down towards left & right
To signal unbearable sitting on the trolley basket
Whining, “Go down, Go down, I want to go down”.
“Please!” “Please!” “Please!”

My toddler couldn’t stand sitting on the trolley basket while buying groceries for his needs. My husband and I resolved it by him paying at the cashier while I immediately push the cart out and he kept quiet.
