may we all be heard
words are bells
let them ring!

She knows where the cheap aisles glow-
generics and half price items-tea bags 30 p
milk one pound-essentials like bread and sugar
gather in her Holy Hands as she scoops them up
vigilant as hawk for her hunting and gathering
means sustenance and nourishment for all
within her settlement.She flashes fast past high prices
checks coupons for bargain basement styles
selectively editing what is presented for her eyes
as she only ever carries a small cage(wire)
Now she deposits all upon conveyor
Now she checks and calculates
Life is like a kingfisher morning-
one can neither wait nor hesitate..
Now she has paid and gained her points card
Now she is planning her return
Like every shopper for survival
this is the theme we all must learn alike...
Lightning strikes...
