Post Series: The Poems with Explanations Series: Two walked in

Two walked in

Two walked in,
expecting three,
but wait four,
oh …
lots more shopping

This poem is about birth.  In the poem, a man and his pregnant wife walk into the hospital expecting they were going to have one baby (in the poem – three people: husband, wife, baby).  As a surprise though, they had twins (four people: husband, wife, baby one, baby two).  There’s a moment where the husband realizes he needs to buy more stuff.
