The Supermarket Coupon - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

Is every chain store coupon
An opportunity, a door?
To change routine, try something new
Or is it something more?

This morning I went shopping
Coupons picked my lunch
Corned beef rolls were very nice
But now I have a hunch

The corned beef was more expensive
Than the one I normally pick
And the rolls were quite exquisite
Are they taking the mick?

Are they trying to refine me?
Make me be more posh
I cannot see that 'appening
I'll stick with my cheap nosh

So when I get a coupon
They'll now go in the bin
An opportunity, an open door
I won't be letting in

    " taking the mick
    to tease or kid someone. British slang" SO, are the coupon sandwich rolls being teased?

    coupons rule (some) lives when (some) shoppers go to buy. not me either.
