Lost Keys

Mom lost her keys.
She screeches,
"Help me please!"
Mom lost her keys...
Again.

We're already late.
Another tardy
Is my fate.
We're already late...
Again.

I look down low.
We need keys
So we can go.
I look down low...
Again.

I lift Mom's purse.
*jingle-jangle*
Mom screeches
A curse.
Again.
