Status: Finished  |  Genre: Other  |  House: Booksie Classic

Was quickly thought up while I was walking around a supermarket

The sound system excreting an eerie tone
The shop clerk repeating a weary drone
The child being dragged begins to moan
While the husband pauses and begins to phone

The till beep, the in-isle creep
The child is silenced without a peep
The little boy reaching into the shelf so deep
For his one and only favourite treat

The jingles, the jangles, the bump and the bang
Some would say this is no place for a man
Apologies, laughter, screams and hellos
All of this happens from open til close

This made me laugh - you've summed up the supermarket in four stanzas! It's great, well done! Please could you take a look at some of my work?

Well thank you very much! Its good to see people I don't know enjoy my stuff. I wish I knew what a stanza was, I have no literature knowledge whatsoever.

Of course I can take a look at your work! Thank you again, I hope you will read my future work
