Shopping for Bulmers


While I was in the supermarket last night I witnessed a strange altercation which I have committed to poetry.

Two shoppers argue spiritedly,
Locked in verbal mortal combat
Because of the contents of
Their shopping basket.
A basket which holds
Two bottles of Bulmers cider
And a packet of Coco pops cereal.
Arms wave and voices raise
As the cereal goes back and forth
Between the basket and the shelf.
I imagine even the U.N.
Has never witnessed such
A heated debate.
In the end a compromise is reached
The cider stays and is joined
By a smaller box of cereal.
War is averted and peace reigns
No doubt to be toasted tonight
In cereal covered cider ?
