I am not ancient, but certainly older than most

When I get annoyed, I like to write and post

It is natural in due time to develop a routine

We become creatures of habit is what I mean

When I discover that I really like something

Then to that item or product I tend to cling

I am in particularly talking here about food

Buying the things I like to eat, helps my mood

Food companies bait me and slip me the hook

Then, when I depend on buying it and go look

It has been discontinued, gone without a trace

When I ask the sales clerk won't look at my face

They say discontinued and stare at the floor

How'd it sell? "Couldn't keep it in the store"

I just don't understand, if it sells that good

I would think they'd keep making it, I would

This has happened three times this year

In just the past seven weeks, that is severe

Why don't companies listen to the buyer?

Why do they stop selling what we all desire?
