Internet Shopping

Internet Shopping

In Covid times there is some doubt
If it’s safe, to be going out
Don’t  want to be a shop commuter
So do your retail via computer

Just let Google show the way
It’s so easy, people say
Search wanted  items on the net
All you need will be there ….yet,

With so many to inspect
It makes it tricky to select
Reading all those long  reviews
Makes it harder, which to choose

Ponder, do I really need
To search for half a day indeed
I’m wasting time, and wasting money
It’s sad and  I don’t find it funny

As I get to finalise my sale
WiFi slows to pace of snail
May find I’ve run out of luck
That the enter button has got stuck

Or someone else has claimed my prize
Sold out of stock that’s in my size
I must warn you, whilst I’m thinking
…….don’t do shopping after drinkin’

Two a.m. and glass of wine
You forget just where ……to draw the line

About the author

1628 Up Votes
I have always written poetry but when my husband died suddenly I used it as a kind of therapy. I don’t usually share these unless I feel they will help someone in distress. The ones I share are mostly humorous intended to bring a smile in what I feel can be a very lonely world... I have written four booklets and now a Corona chronicles which is just twelve poems writ while I am in jail...oh sorry I meant lockdown. Am on my way for a second booklet.. Trying to make folk smile and take a minutes release from these difficult times helps me forget my sight problems..

Hahaha, so very true Glenys. Glad you still have some humour left to write yet another lovely poem.

I am feeling like this!

Love the song, there’s plenty of fences round here, and more than enough folk to take offence.....only joking .....
