Mall Crawl

We went to the mall the day after Thanksgiving,
to purchase the gifts we would be giving.
My mother, my father, my sister, and I,
We all had our lists of presents we'd buy.

We got up at dawn and went straight to the mall,
But came home without any presents at all.
For though we were there from morning till dark,
We spent the day looking for someplace to park.

-Kenn Nesbitt


I think the interpretation of this poem is that they had a hard time looking
for a parking spot at the mall.
The 1st and 2nd lines rhyme. the 3rd and 4th lines rhyme also.
My poem is a free verse poem
The mood of this poem is that they are getting annoyed about looking
for a parking space and they are tired.
I chose this poem because it relates to when we went
chrismas shopping for family.
