Fools Gold!


I am a marketing department’s dream, I fall for the sales pitch every time. This week I bought some oddly-packaged biscuits. Despite Mr Sensible on my left shoulder shouting louder than Mr Go-for-It on my right, I abandoned caution and now question my judgement…

I’ve just bought a biscuit tin,
Not designed for keeping biscuits in.
It’s hard to tell from the shape,
What’s inside, can’t be cake.
‘Limited Edition’ is their refrain,
Sold by the million, pure financial gain.
A valuable heirloom it won’t be,
Just more junk bought by me!
