Well, what a week that was!
It was really special because
My brother, he won two awards,
And, him, the townsfolk did applaud.
He works in a shop in the centre of town;
He always wears a smile – never a frown.
New people, he always loves to meet;
His customer service is pretty hard to beat.
When a customer goes up to his till,
Before presenting them with their bill,
He will chat with them for a while,
And will always have a friendly smile.
About him, I have never heard
A single bad or hurtful word.
Customers will often sing his praise –
About how he brightens up their day.
He went to a ceremony at The Lights,
Where he enjoyed a wonderful night.
We were all dressed up to the nines,
And everybody looked simply divine.
From what his customers have observed,
They feel the awards were well deserved.
He won two certificates – both were framed,
And in our local paper, he was named.
By many people, he is well-known,
And, much affection, he has been shown.
About him, many people have raved,
Shaking his hand, saying ‘Good on you, Dave! ’
His style of service, many appreciate,
And his friendly manner, they really rate;
People will purposely head to his till,
So that, of cheerfulness, they receive their fill.
My brother has been the talk of the town;
From cloud nine, he has yet to come down;
He’s definitely had his best week yet,
And it’s one which he will not forget.
