PC SHOPPING

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Oct 11, 2017

She ordered all her 
groceries,
At the click of a
plastic mouse,
And before she knew
it, there they were,
Delivered to her 
house.


She didn't need to
leave her room,
Or talk to anyone,
Just flick the switch
on her PC,
And then the job
was done.


Then one day she
flicked the PC on,
But saw a big black
screen.
The PC needed 
surgery - 
And her larder was
quite lean!


She pressed the
'shift', she pressed
'backspace',
And checked it was
plugged in,
But hunger was 
getting the best
of her
She could have 
thrown in in the
bin!


There was only
one alternative - 
She would have to
shower and dress,
And set out to her
local store,
When last went 
she couldn't guess!


Children scooted by
her
On their way to 
school,
And a mini Spider-
man and Batman,
Had a little duel.


A puppy at the end
of its leash,
Sniffed around her
feet,
And she couldn't
help, but smile a 
while,
On that sunny 
summer street.


And she noticed
that the flowers,
Were open, in full
bloom,
And thought she
must remember,
To buy some for
her room.


In the shop she
chatted,
And had a good
look around,
Then bagged up
all her groceries - 
Paying for them
with real pounds!


She smiled and 
headed off back
home,
At a steady pace,
And thought about
her shopping trip,
That PC could 
replace.
