Decisions In The Food Hall - Poem by kate williams

Three for two!
Four for three!
Ten per cent extra!
One extra free!

Points to collect!
Coupons to use!
Free gift inside...
Which shall I choose?

Mega or slimline?
King-size or bite-?
Twin-pack or family?
Which one is right?

Tinned, or hand-made?
Cut-price, or Fairtrade?
Diced, sliced? Plain, spiced?
Such odds to be weighed!

Oh, deary me! Which one should it be?
I know - none, and I've done before I've begun.
I won't be won over by tomfoolery!

    So true,
    But still many poeple fall in the tricks
    Consumerism looks like a never ending story

    spin of looms on net
    Mega or slimline?
    King-size or bite-?
    Twin-pack or family?
