Shopping For Love - Poem by marvin cheeseman

Their trolleys touched, their eyes did meet
Beside a stack of Shredded Wheat
His pulse did race, her heart did flutter
Near the crunchy peanut butter

Not for them a gentle breeze
Through fragrant, trembling blossom trees
Just a stroll past processed cheese
And multi packs of mushy peas

A constant smile upon their lips
Both liked crinkled oven chips
This love was surely meant to be
They both drank only Typhoo tea

A love so pure, a love so true
And later in the checkout queue
She gazed into his very soul
And dropped a Birdseye Arctic Roll

So Cupid's work was surely done
Two trolleys now are pushed as one
And thanks to Tesco in a while
They shall walk down a different aisle.

    Top marks for this hilarious tongue-in-cheek piece of work, Marvin. What a great poem to end my day. Laughing all the way to Bedfordshire...... Top marks.

    Love, Fran xx
