Full Pantry

My mother was always very careful,
At times, it was something awful,
I remember once coming to visit my folks,
She had the thinking of the guards of Fort Knox,
You would think the world was coming to an end,
She kept tins and cans, and a box of first aid,
We had tins of sardines, of beans and of peas,
Fruits from South Africa and tuna from Belize,
Corn from the US, potatoes from the Yukon,
Coffee from Brazil and tea from Ceylon,
It took me more than a year to use all that stuff,
We sure had more than enough,
I remember fondly my mother’s secret pantry,
That had enough food to feed the whole country.
