Dear Editor:

Have you ever set out to go shopping

Then parked in the lot at the mall?

You've carefully noted row numbers

And even some signs on the wall.

You're then feeling sure your location

Will be quite simple to find

Since you've certainly sent every landmark

And neighboring auto to mind.

Then why when I've finished my errand

And come out with my full shopping cart

Do I have to stop short quite bewildered

Since I'm just not sure which way to start?

Now my mall has no valet parking

And I know my spot wasn't too far.

So please can anyone tell me

Have you seen elves moving my car?
