The Wedding Gift - Poem by VICTORIA GEORGE

I wanted to buy some friends a nice gift
For their wedding, some time away
The happy couple had given a list
So I decided to look on e-Bay

The bride and groom were so hard to please
So I really was - very stuck
Any gifts of food should be gluten free
They were both allergic to nuts

No gifts of nylon or fabrics that itch
No cotton or items that crease
No fur, maybe lace but only hand stitched
Wrapping paper from sustainable trees

No household utensils or things for the home
Nothing for - the garden or shed
They didn’t want clothes
Had plenty of those
Nothing blue, green, yellow or red

I looked in the shops but had to give in
I was feeling so very heart-broken
Then I found the most perfect thing
I bought them a lovely gift token!
