For World Poetry Day, here’s a departure from limericks. Some experiences on Twitter of weird online shopping substitutions brought to mind Lewis Carroll’s surreal poem A Strange Wild Song – my template here.
She thought she bought some tampons from/
The website Jeff controls,/
She looked again, and saw it was/
A bag of sausage rolls,/
A rather cavalier approach,/
She felt, to plugging holes.
She thought she bought a walnut loaf/
To share with all of us,/
She looked again and saw it was/
A Tesco’s octopus./
We ate it with our tea because/
She didn’t want a fuss.
