Please use the following TDO MONOLOGUE for your submission below:

Jack’s mother was not
In a very good mood,
When she learned that her son
Hadn’t bought any food.

With no fuel for the fire,
And no bread to bake,
Jack soon understood
He had made a mistake.

But his Mom didn’t scold him
Or cause any scenes,
Though, she was unhappy
About those beans.

No use to cry over
Spilled milk now.
Or, speaking of milk…
An old sick cow.
