We’re not like this, you and me. But some people in bookshops are…
Bookshopping: a sonnet
Excuse me, if you wouldn’t mind
I’m looking for a certain book.
A famous one – you know the kind –
The sort to own (in case folks look).
The author’s name I can’t advise –
I’m pretty sure that he was male.
I think perhaps it won a prize,
Or featured in your half-price sale?
My favourite blogger thought it fine;
She gave it eight stars out of ten
(She said she would have given nine,
But doesn’t like to flatter men).
You can’t help? Even with such
Description? Well, thanks VERY much.
