In the Land of Buy and Sell

The cash till rings its nonstop bell.

     The sun shines from fluorescent lights.

     There’s not a tree or bird in sight.


Sexy bras, new bags or shoes;

Designer clothes - seductive hues;

     Things to right your breaking heart

     And give your life a big kick-start.


Retail therapy day and night

Will help to make you feel all right.

     So treat yourself - run up a bill

     And give your inner self a thrill.


Then colour hair, drop down a size

And look around at all those guys  - - - -??????

     No!  Please don’t look  -  you have a break!

     The last one was your big mistake!
