Cheapened (9.13.10)

i walked by you yesterday
price was nine ninety-nine
today i thought
to pass again
see what you're at this time

as i walked down your aisle
familiar with both sides
i thought aloud
what if perchance
a discount i would find

i arrived at your empty shelf
a basket in my hand
it was to be your cradle
until you would be scanned

i left your empty shelf
aisle, store, and street
then off i wandered elsewhere
looking for one to eat
