Charityshop Sale - Poem by Marie Causey

looking in the shop window I stood there in shock
Special offer it said, clearance of old stock
I knew I had to have it, The price was so Right
On the way home I held it close and very tight

I almost dropped it, there was snow on the ground
God I am so Lucky, I cant believe what I found
In The house I unwrapped it, with a glint in my eye
I quickly put it on the shelf, thinking how lucky am I

I stood there and I watched it, It felt so good to own
Oh NO cried my husband, All he does is moan
My sister and my mother smiled and picked it up
I shouted don't you dropp it, my sister said shut up

To some it doesn't seem much to me its everything
I just cant resist an old pot doll that can sing
It only cost two Quid, Its a bargain in a charity shop
My hubby says my doll buying really has to stop
