Poem 189 - In a supermarket

I saw an old man picking many cans of cokes
I watched amused, as he dropped them into his trolley
I took my things and went near the counter
I had some change left, I picked up a lolly

I go to the counter and I'm right behind the "coke man"
I see the cashier's reaction, as the man puts many cans of coke on the counter
The man asks for the bill, as the cashier counts the cans, with a smile
Seeing the bill, the man did saunter

He pulled out a tattered wallet, and took out some cash
He gave it to the cashier, and took the plastic bag
I wondered how it fit in one plastic bag
At the car seeing the bill, his wife did nag

  2. Hi Gaurang,

    Great poem and story about coke and it was as if I could see you during this moment in your life. I would have loved to have seen the cashier's reaction to someone just buying so much cola. Although I am sure that cashier's see so many strange things every day.

    Thank you so much for playing in this weeks Theme Thursday. I like your reaction to the different prompts and how you fit them together. See you next week.

    God bless.
