Poem: My Emergency Kit

My Emergency Kit

I need to build an emergency kit
Making sure I put the right stuff in it
Water, at least a three-day supply
A non-electric radio for news to get by
And, of course, I’ll need my trusty flashlight
And batteries to keep it burning so bright
Food lasting awhile, can opener too
A sleeping bag or some blankets, a few
A first aid kit in case someone gets hurt
Extra car keys, if they’re lost in the dirt
Some cash money, gotta have that
And meds for everyone, including the cat
Warm clothing, sturdy shoes, TP I’ll need
Documents in oilskin, include the house deed
Put it all together in a little backpack
Spare for the car, prepared with my sack.
