Standard Issue?

This poem was inspired by a Nan. A humorous, deeply loving Nan with lovely stories, an always welcoming smile and a constant supply of sweets. The modern age provides a plethora of solutions for an ageing lady.


Do I look a wally

With this tartan shopping trolley?

No, it looks alright.

It’s a bit grannyish

Yeah but it gets you out

To get the food you talk about.

 

What’s that for?

It’s a claw

To pick things up off the floor

When your back

Won’t bend, but crack

Stops you lying there, flat

 

I’m not wearing that

What the heck!

Bit of chord ’round me neck.

It’s for your glasses,

why this pair has lasted

Longer than the other eight.

 

Well that’s just silly

A single, two footed slipper.

Yeah, you’re probably right about that.
