White, black, yellow, or maybe green,
the kitchen’s tall and silent queen.
Blending in with the cabinets
only missed if she’s on the fritz.
Her worth is rarely fully measured
yet we trust her with our treasure.
The place we go to seek the cure
for hungry cravings we can’t endure.
Keep the lettuce and tomatoes cold,
keep the cheese from getting mold.
Shelves kept so full we cannot find
the condiments that hide behind
the milk and sodas and yummy food
that keep us in a happy mood.
Where’s the salsa? Where’s the mustard?
I think I see it behind the custard.
Do we have some pickle relish?
I need it for my tuna sandwich.
In the freezer is ice cream and meat
And bags of veggies no one will eat.
Frozen foods like pizza and juices
are essential for daily uses.
Don’t forget to buy dad’s favorite!
Mountain Dew, he will savor it.
Look inside, but don’t just stand there!
You’ll let out all the cold air!
The temperature isn’t right, oh no!
Time to head to Home Depot!
