Round and Round

Millie gave a bag to her daughter in law

She’d had it too long, it held no flaw

Tracey hated it, so donated

The charity shop were so elated

Jude loved vintage, it was her thing

Bright colours and a bit of bling

Jude so liked the low price tag

And thought to herself, ‘I’ll have that bag!’

She was such an impulse buyer

but the bag’s colour didn’t match her attire

So off it went, to another charity

Could it be sold for fifty pee?

The shop’s manager took it instead

She liked the hue, a strong deep red

But it got stolen on a long train ride

The bag was empty, so she didn’t really mind

The train cleaner sneaked it home

He could sell it to pay off a loan

He’d try to flog it at the big car boot

Perhaps it was worth a lot of loot?

Jack picked up a bargain that day

A bag for his wife, not a lot to pay

Pat put it on an auction site

It sold very quickly, in fact that night

Now the bag has another owner

A sixty- something Scot called Shona

In another month or two

This bag will pass – to me or you?
