Supermarket Shopping - Poem by Ernestine Northover

A pound in the slot and out comes the chain,
It's Saturday supermarket shopping again,
And so I've obtained my large wire trolley,
And when shopping, you certainly need loads of lolly!

The shelves will be stacked with goodies galore,
There are loads to be seen from ceiling to floor,
Things that we need and things for a treat,
Food to have cold and food you must heat.

Bright coloured fruit and vegetables are,
Good for your health and keep you up to par,
Bread, rolls and biscuits, crisps and savoury snacks,
On their own, or in multiple packs.

Cheeses and yogurts, cream, butter and milk,
Some with strong flavours and some smooth as silk,
Sauces and pickles, mustards and dips,
Bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms and chips.

What gorgeous thoughts the word 'food' conjures up,
Especially if you're hungry and you wish to sup,
The aromas and spices, and sweet things and sour,
Shortcrust and flaky pastries, both of which are made with flour.

All kinds of fish dishes like haddock and dab,
Sardine, pilchard, tuna, anchovy and crab,
Squid if you like, it is lovely when fried,
It's really delicious to eat, have you tried?

Salmon of course, is the best of the lot,
This is a fish you can serve cold or hot,
With a salad to garnish, the taste is divine,
It's really become a great favourite of mine.

Desserts are mouth watering, they just have to be bought,
From gateaux's with chocolate, or a raspberry torte,
Strawberry pavlovas, or nutty meringues.
Each and everyone of them will answer your pangs.

Bottles of wine, of red and of white,
Champagne to drink on that one special night,
Maybe a gin, a vodka or sherry,
But with all of this, you can soon become merry.

So reaching the 'cash out' you stand there and check,
On all that you've purchased, it's only a speck,
Of what was on offer, one could buy up the lot,
But most likely you're contented with what you have got.

    I shall remember this poem when I venture out on Saturday in the direction of Sainsbury's. I like it because it satirises the vast choice of goods we have and the plethora of special offers etc. The rhyming couples give over the hustle bustle feel you get in supermarkets. I couldn't help but laugh aloud. Reply

    The thing I love most about your poetry is the way you write about everyday things like this. We all go grocery shopping but it takes a real skill to put such a task to a poem. Well done. Sincerely, Mary Reply

Shopping Poems

  1. Her Shopping Expedition

    She picked up the bags which contained all her shopping, Trying to carry them along without dropping The contents. Hoping the handles wouldn't give way, Spreading her purchases around on display. She managed as far as the bus rendezvous, Then one handle snapped and then it was two, And over the ground rolled, jars, tins and fruit, Clattering noisily, as they travelled en route. How embarrassing this sort of happening can be, All you have bought, there, for the public to see, And no one offering to help you collect, Your shopping. She felt such an despondent reject. Then out of the blue, a gallant young Bart, Offered her his help, his hand, and his heart! © Ernestine Northover

  2. ***shopping With An Angel***

    Bathed in tepid water, powder puffed in clouds of special talc: this little lady is then pigtailed with coloured ribbons and dressed to kill. Placed in her royal carriage that bumps up and down the pavements of High Streets, she stares up at passing knees, looks straight into the hungry, wolfish eyes of dogs. Today is shopping day; a day for her to leave her mark and make her the star of some naughty cabaret. In tempting stores, her tiny hands will reach for all that she can see; never quite understanding why, it doesn't all belong to her. Deprived and unrewarded by messy chocolate dreams, she sucks at the empty air and pitches an almighty scream; that falls and grates on the edgy nerves of innocent shoppers. The scream then turns into a nagging mummbling whimper, before that uncontrollable fit. Her eyes now red as a Bourneville wrapper. Candlesticks below her nose, bubble in a manic rage. Her feet stamp the footrest like a Spanish dancer….. This world, can seem so unfair, to a little girl... with ribbons in her hair. Shopping with Little Angels

  3. Shopping For Yourself (Life Life Life Life Life)

    Store up for a while What things you might need Just for few weeks No more you see We've lived with the sins Of greed and lust We don't need anymore To be blamed on us Just do it slow That way from where it might flow It might be here faster For others you know. Some planted early It won't be too long So just the staples In case something goes wrong And point out the toxins Planted in the way So others can see them As they pass here today Just point them out As you pass by No false accurasations For our goal is High The Lord's Prayer Our Father Which art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name Thy Kingdom come THY WILL BE DONE On earth as it is in Heaven Give us this day our daily Bread And forgive us our sins For we also forgive everyone that is indebted to us And lead us not into temptation But deliver us from evil For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory Forever. Amen.

  4. Beachcombing Bri ….[ Inspired By P H's " Beachcombers All Of Us ", By Laurie Van Der Hart; Shell-Shopping; Vacation Pros And Cons; Short ]

    The plane fare to the tropic island was $900 (round-trip) , and on the island's thorny growth, my Armani swim suit did rip. Our rustic sleeping accommodations there were another $1000 a night, and our so-so meals were 'extra', AND prices on their wine list were 'out of sight'! BUT it's true, we DID find some pretty shells, some broken, some not, and some very pretty, wave-polished, pink and purple pebbles...we both got to go along with a dried-up 3-inch-long seahorse, a treasure to be sure, & a fossil shark tooth & a bikini top of unknown origin [perhaps the result of a friendly boy-girl jostle? ].
