International Put your Poem in a Shop Month (finally) hits Ireland

At long last, the snow has cleared to an extent that has allowed for shop going, and camera carrying, and planning ahead. So I have finally got my act together with an excerpt from an old poem of mine finally finding its way onto a shelf of a shop.
It was tricky to do this without being noticed, I will warn ye - since only zombies and people with military training seem to be making it out to the shops in this weather.

Anyway, here it is... perfectly disguised as a public service announcement.

Don't forget the poems in shops are now in FOUR whole Countries worldwide,
and should soon sweep every village and town and workplace known to man. You don't want your local shop to be left out, do you? DO YOU???

And here's the close up, along with human finger for perspective...

The text for those too lazy to click on the pic to enlarge it is

Don't bring your horse to Tesco
He'll only let his mess go
The staff'll say "You'd best go"
When he scutters in the aisle

Look at the last few posts for other partakers tales

Dedicated, that is what you are! Why don't you write a christmas poem from Santa, if you are going to put it in with the toys????

The Dead Acorn said...

An abbreviated poem of dissuasion ... short enough that shoppers will read it, yet no less cautionary. You are truly doing the public a service there.

Great idea socks, and an excuse to hang around looking at toys again! YAY!!

Thanks Dead Acorn, I like to think I'm doing my bit. :-)

Well done! Love the scutter, havent heard that word in ages!
Glad you mentioned that was a "human" finger!
I did mine this afternoon, ran in and out as quickly as i could, very exciting!

Niamh B said...

Yay Words!! That's fab, and you got three of them out there!!! Going to post them here now.

That is so great! I love it! "his mess go" - you just get better and better!

oh, that's a good one. I'm going to start cracking with some shop poems, though they frown so much on photos in shops that documentation may be difficult. Whatever! Planting the pomes is the thing.

That's the challenge NanU!

and thanks Kat :-)
