Choosing A Card!


The other day I was looking through a selection of cards in a supermarket when I sensed the frustration of a fellow-shopper. She was having difficulty in finding a suitable card for a friend who was unwell…

“I’m looking for a card for a friend,
who fell off a ladder,
I want to cheer him up,
not make him any sadder!”

“He doesn’t need reminding,
of his self-inflicted disaster,
nor does he need others,
to poke fun at his plaster!”

“All I can find,
(leaving out reference to drink)
are cards offering ‘With Sympathy!’
Helpful? I don’t think!” 

…I’m afraid I wished her luck and left her to her deliberations.
