THE SALESMAN

THE SALESMAN

A Poem by Betty Hermelee

THE SALESMAN

The salesman says these chairs are a find

Then swivels around and changes his mind

You’re over charging me sir

My face turns red and eyes a blur

I can sell you another chair

But sir, this one is a pair

Then I’ll sell you two for one

Now that’s a deal quite well done

He chips a leg while loading my car

I have another, but the price you will spar

I’ll keep what I have and fix it

Oh dear, says the salesman, may I offer you a fix kit

Thank you, no, I’ll be on my way

You’re welcome, Madame, perhaps I’ll see you another day?

Made me smile Betty. These slice of life scenarios are good material for poetry. Quirky behaviour indeed. All the best and thanks for the smile.

You are welcome dear Betty. Enjoy the rest of the day :)
made me think of a line in Phenomenon when Travolta says to Kyra Sedgwick...

"But they're really great chairs, Leese....."

very well done, and so true...I agree with John...they both have the same mothers.

Do salesmen and lawyers have the same mothers?

That was cool, I love writing like this, those quirky conversations you have or over hear, all you have to do is share it. I people watch and listen and put them to poetry cuz they have such a more interesting life than my own not that mine isn’t interesting cuz it is because I love and live with crazy people but others are muses and mine I want to run them out of the house ;) nicely done
