Shopping for “Thomas”

Went shopping with Poppie –

just for one thing.

It wasn’t a playhouse –

or even a ring.

Our reason for going –

its purpose was plain.

A video disc –

of Thomas the Train.

But when we had finished –

I’d gotten more loot.

These really neat pillows –

a backpack to boot.

I’m crazy ’bout Thomas –

he is really cool.

He’s with me at home –

and even at school.

My plan when I shop –

get Poppie to linger.

I’ve got him so wrapped –

‘round my small little finger!
