Ode To The Tesco Check-Out Girl Poem by shel cope

Ode To The Tesco Check-Out Girl

Rating: 5.0

Another Saturday
Circling aimlessly
like a broken ship
down the isles of plenty.
Dancing the choreography of the damned
to the latest use-by date beats.

The pretty check-out girl routinely smiles
and asks if she can help.
Heart quickens as usual
then I remember
it’s the slammer for me if I showed her how.
Maybe next week

That is just brilliantly hilarious. Next time why not give her this poem on a bit of a paper along with the £20? t x

Shel...what would life be without the quickened heart and women to fall in love with for a few seconds. Liked this one. Take care, John
