Genre: Society, Rhyme
(with profuse apologies to John Masefield)
Elegant young lady dressed in black Versace
gliding around Waitrose with a leisured ease,
with a cartload of oysters, mussels, truffles,
fillet steak, Bollinger, and Stilton cheese.
Smartish young accountant still in office outfit
trudging around Sainsbury’s on her homeward way,
with a cartload of pasta, chicken, houmous,
pitta bread, Camembert and Chardonnay.
Shabby hungry student rushing back from lectures,
dashing around Tesco in her faded jeans,
with a cartload of cider, Cheddar, pizza,
sliced bread, sausages and cheap baked beans.
