I went on holiday and when
I returned to shop, I then
Found, to my complete dismay,
The supermarket in disarray.
For, without my consultation,
Whilst away and on vacation,
Every product that I knew
Had fondly made a quick adieu.
I couldn’t find the cheddar cheese
For it had been replaced with peas.
The butter too had gone astray,
Replaced by flowers on display.
I wanted tea but only found
Frozen meals were all around.
I tried to find my favourite ham,
But it had been replaced by jam.
I like to have milk in my tea
And I am sure you will agree
That beer in tea is not the same.
Oh, I am fed up with this game!
An hour has passed and nothing found
Although I’ve hunted all around.
So it’s to the corner shop I go,
To hand my list to one I know.
