Shopping Trip!


Yesterday Mrs Bard and I went shopping in the Marks and Spencer superstore in London Colney. With my mind firmly elsewhere I made a fool of myself…

I was calmly pushing my trolley in Marks
Mrs Bard and I shopping without any sparks
My mind had wandered don’t you know
When I stepped upon somebody’s toe
I turned around to apologise
Couldn’t really begin to believe my eyes
This lonely girl full of grace
Was all entire but had no face
Mrs Bard shouted: “It’s just not funny,
You’ve apologised to a shop floor dummy!”
