L.L. Bean’s original, flagship store is a magical place,
With nifty stuff, like a fish pond, filling every space.
Outside the store, stands a giant boot,
Makes great prop for a picture shoot.
Prices inside just keep rising and rising,
Given commerce today, not surprising.
Trips through Maine included a quick stop
Even if nothing was found to be bought.
Life has meant it’s been more than 10 years since we stopped
My atomic tangerine ball cap is from the last time we shopped.
