Stopping by Stores

With quite profound apologies to Robert Frost

(Tipp von Max Müller)

Whose stores are these? I think I know
Their office in the city, though
Has cameras that watch us here
When we shopping blithely go.

My working friends don’t think it queer
That I persist in shopping here
Between the genuine and fake
There’s late night shopping all the year.

I have new boots and my feet ache
I have made that sad mistake
With the wrong size, and I won’t keep
Them on merely for fashion’s sake.

The shops are lovely, bright and cheap
And I have shoes that I can’t keep
But pounds to spend before I sleep.
And pounds to spend before I sleep.

    The Tap by Adrian Mole

    The tap drips and keeps me awake
    In the morning there will be a lake
    For want of a washer, the carpet will spoil
    And then for another my father will toil.
    My father could snuff it while he’s at work.
    Dad, fit a washer, don’t be a berk!
