Two sisters travel a mile down the road.
On foot it's a hike, much faster by bike.
What motivates them to leave their abode?
They're off to Walter's Variety store.
It's gooey and sweet, or an icecream treat.
Spent their allowance and wishing for more.
Years later wonder if Walter's still there.
For neighborhood kids, or hitting the skids,
And needing to close, life robbing them bare.
