A Poem by Julie Grenness

Bit of harmless fun.



I went from broke to buying a Lamborghini,

Price tag not so teeny,

Sleek and black, for my driving academy,

Or should I buy a red Ferrari?

Command a salesman to 'comprare'?

Wouldn't he be a happy chappy?

But would it make me happy?

I could be buying loads of stuff,

but when you're old, you've got enough!

To me, consumerism is in vain,

My peaceful simple life in the slow lane.

So, today, I did not buy the red Ferrari,

Or indeed, the sleek Lamborghini,

There was no Hot Wheels Driving School,

Consumerism as a manipulative tool!

Julie, a very fun piece. I like it a great deal. I thought you would end up buying an old cheap clunker. hahaha
