Be Careful What You Buy - Poem by VICTORIA GEORGE

I’m now so careful what I buy
From any gal or bloke
For once bitten, now twice shy
From pigs that are in a poke

It thought I’d buy a private plane
The price was pretty good
I only have myself to blame
It was a tool for smoothing wood!

I’d always wanted a country pad
A remote nice hide-a-way
So when I saw this lovely ad
I bought it right away

“Do you want a country seat?
This pad will do you good”
Yes you’ve guessed it, it was just
A bench made out of wood!
