Lonely As A Cloud In Tesco

Recommended Posts

I wandered lonely as a cloud
Two metres from the madding crowd
When all at once my name was called
To enter Tesco’s hallowed hall.


This was the pensioners’ special hour.
I’d gone to get a bag of flour.
But I forgot, when through the door,
What I had gone to Tesco for.


The Tesco staff are extra kind.
I told them it had slipped my mind.
They asked what else I had forgot
They clearly thought I’d lost the plot.


I phoned my wife again to ask.
She reminded me of this special task:
“I need some flour to bake a cake
with all that cream you made me take.”

“Yes I recall” I had to lie.

I dared not ask what flower to buy
But then I saw them next the tills
a bunch of golden daffodils!

When I got home to proudly show

The daffs I'd purchased from Tesco

My dearest gawped and rolled her eyes:

"Tha can forget them cakes and pies!"
