A poem to make up for Yesterday's Shameless Product Placement

So, I didn't mean to feature "Tesco" coffee so prominently in yesterdays post picture, in response to that problem (because I think art should stay free of all corporate involvement) and because I kinda like this - here's

A Poem which aims to dissuade you from bringing your horse to Tesco


This poem that started all the poems to dissuade has found a new home - posting about that soon - ie April 2013 if you're looking to know where to find it....

Never get that problem at Sainsbury's.
I loved "scutters in the aisles".
Horses! £5 on Mon Mome and what did it get me?

Domestic Oub said...

Horses are Lidls special this week - only a fiver for two!

Horses and masonary nails and flip flops...

PF - One can only obey the corporate muse when she strikes, so far Lidl has yielded nothing!
Thanks CFM - I tell myself the same thing...
Thanks Titus - you would if the Sains was in Bfermot... which is where the exact Tesco that inspired this was located. And I'm guessing that fiver got you dissappointment by the bucket.
Ooh - Oub - thanks for the tip - all your summer time needs eh?

Scutter is one of my fave words. Particularly as in 'ye dorty aul scutter' Or 'Pass the wine , Bishop divine, pass the butter you dirty ould scutter'

I likes this poem that, beautifully satirical, posits a serious socio- political point.Would horses actually be welcome at Tesco's when be-pyjamma'ed people are not?

My advice to conscientious consumers is avoid Tesco like a dose.

I'm living vicariously through you, as Coca-Cola, Penzoil, and McDonald's bankroll my writing, and I ... I ... I can't say no. Thank god my mother's not alive to see me as such a whore.
