Bar or Shop

 

 

 

Unexpected item in the bagging area

The mechanical voice starts to boom

This is really getting up my derriere

And I might retaliate soon

Pardon my French I say to no one

But the voice starts booming again

You must contact a member of staff

Sod it are you having a laugh

 

The reason I’m here is to get out fast

Speed up things get on passed

But bloody hell this is a trial

More like walking a country mile

I call the assistant with a frown

The stupid machine has broken down

The assistant taps in a code

And starts to scan and unpack my load

Surely there is an easier way

To buy my shopping I have to say

I‘ll get someone else to do my shopping

And head straight for the bar without stopping.
