Trolley Folly – by Humphrey Grottle
Seconded by unanimous motion,
The trolley caused a depth of emotion,
Remembering’s of campsites, Valium and toast,
That teddy that Julie had liked the most.
Grabbing the carton,
Feel like a Spartan!
Twixt the fingers,
Find the beast
Trolleys shouldn’t cause these thoughts,
Like shoes on impulse hastily bought,
Dumplings cook gently while the dog looks on,
But in her mind the trolley still shone.
Grasping the Inuit,
Feel like a bis-cu-it!
Minus the soft bit,
Flush out the brush.
‘Get out!’ cried Julie ‘I’ve had my fill!’
The trolley trundled towards the ghostly till,
Imagine a Kit-Kat coming for dinner,
The trolley still going and clearly the winner
Holding the wash-mitt,
Feeling like a twit,
She doesn’t give a monkeys,
Julie jogs on…
Bis-cu-it? Really? Well, more poetry again soon dear reader!
