Ma'm this dress looks very beautiful on you
It will make you look ten years younger
Oh is it true?
You will look as good as in thirties
Still the price is too high
Please show me another one
Ma'm I will show
But this is unique piece with heavy discount
up-to fifty percent only for this one.
Once you say no
Someone will pick immediately and
You will miss the boat.
Now I was just flattered with his flattery voice.
Like a balloon filled with thrills I was just flying high in the sky.
So excited I was
To share my beautiful surprise with everyone
As I got the unique piece just half the price.
Instead all faces turned black and red giving me a frown looks.
Shouting and screaming.
Your choice is too poor.
Yeah I too realised it long back.
How cum this horrible suits you?
See the price
You could have brought 10 dresses instead.
Just like a balloon I was filled with thrills
Just a poke of pin everything went down the bin.
now fell tumbling all the way down.
