Nothing Out of Season - Mag 229

The Corner Grocery
Prompt provided by the Mag 229

No bananas

Apples and oranges
grapefruit from down in Texas
potatoes from Colorado.
Pepsi Cola just 5 cents
with return of deposit.

No kiwi 

Mango or dragon fruit
nothing from across foreign seas
quality meats and groceries
grown locally
Snuff and tobacco in tins.

No Made in China

Flour from the local mill
All picked and trucked by union labor
No big chain markets
or box stores
Just cousin Joe at the local store.
