Lent poem #26

A beautiful day and not one for staying in and watching the TV, waiting for the football results.

 

Walked the way today of the modern man.

Trailed the stores and paid attention

to various floors of bags and dresses

and brooches and watches.

Nodded sagely, smiling all the time.

Probably because of the wine

 at lunchtime.

Carried the bags and stopped at shops

 that sold lots of creams and smelly soaps

 always in the hopes

 that my team were winning.

They did: Four Nil!
