My poem today was written on Boxing Day, it's kind of my little protest about having the 26th as another day of rest.
So here goes.....
I think the sales should start tomorrow
put off for another day to have a good furrow
As humans I think we need one more day of rest
to allow our bodies and minds to perform at their very best
Shop staff may prefer another day
of eating, drinking and in their pj's they could stay
We could then get excited, get prepared to camp out
nudge everyone out the way, careful not to give anyone a clout
The queues they start early
on the doors security people looking all burly
It's like nightclubbing back in the day
but instead of a cocktail you come out with something cheap on display
Me? I prefer to stay at home
I like to leave it longer before I go out for a roam
Bread and milk from little Tesco for me
then back to the warm, lock my door up again with my key
So I'll leave it to you whatever you enjoy
give a smile and thank the ones the shops do employ
I hope you get the bargains you have your eyes upon
but if you need me I'll be taking part in a Quality Street marathon
Thank you for reading today.
Join me again tomorrow for
Free From Friday...
but for now.....
A Verse for Thursday....
