Decisions in the Food Hall


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

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!
