An Ode to a Supermarket – Booths 

Oh Booths my heart stirs and an urgent bidding calls,

To enliven my senses with local produce, fair

Sumptuously your cheeses my eye enthrals

Home baked bread a captivating snare.

A rich tapestry of colour: fruit and veg diverse.

For you, oh Booths, have so many charms!

I return to be teased by rare chutneys and local game

Your reward card is held close within my purse

And branded canvas bag laid across my arms

My loyalty is yours no other supermarket may claim.



I am due to return home to Lancashire soon, to visit my long missed love – Booths Supermarket, oh and see my Mum!
