The End of Term at the Boot Sale!

Share

Bootsale SunriseFor the last twenty-one years the last Saturday of the car boot sale season has felt like the end of term at a school. Like a school we shall have leavers who we won’t see again and next ‘term’ we shall enjoy meeting new customers. In this business the main asset are the people. Someone once said to me, “you take it too personally!” Damn right I do it’s personal…

It’s the end of term at the bootsale,
One last chance to buy or to sell,
Because next week it’ll be empty,
No buyers will be here as well!

It’s the end of term at the bootsale,
The stalls will be packed away,
Boxes returned to the garage
To see daylight some other day!

It’s the end of term at the bootsale,
The field will soon be clear.
The people will all have parted,
“Goodbye! We’ll see you next year!”

It’s the end of term at the bootsale,
The animals will wonder what’s wrong,
The hares will say to each other,
“I wonder where they have all gone?”

It’s the end of term at the bootsale,
Farmer Giles closes the gate,
Next week he’ll enjoy a lie-in,
No more chance that he will be late!
