The Child's Version of Rising Food Prices

(To be sung to the tune of “Three Blind Mice.”)

Look at the rice.

It has a new price.

Up, never down.

I feel I will drown.

It’s taking all the fun out of life.

Budgets, stress and bankruptcies are rife.

Did you ever see such a sight in your life

As the price of rice?

Rice is the staple of more of the world's population than any other food. Its rising price has led to riots in some nations. Sam's Club and Costco are now limiting bulk sales of rice. What's next? Micky D limiting the number of double cheeseburgers we can get?
