Here is a funny poem about the dangers of buying on the internet… I hope you enjoy it!
Happy Christmas from The Memory Book. Why not make 2012 the year when you save those family memories and celebrate your life…
The Perils of Buying on the Internet
Mr Jones from Number Three
Bought an enormous Christmas tree
To decorate and make glittery,
With stars and lights for all to see.
He bought it on the internet,
‘Free delivery’ they said.
He waited quite expectantly
And even quite excitedly.
But Mr Jones had made a mistake,
And now of course it was too late!
The lorry was coming up the road
With a bizarrely heavy load.
Trouble was, this enormous tree
Was much too big for Number Three.
His garden was small and rather twee,
As was the house and drive, you see.
He now feared his wife’s animosity…
His mouse control was very poor –
This tree would not fit through the door!
His finger must have hit the wrong key…
But he looked at the tree optimistically
As it towered above house Number Three.
An idea came to him suddenly
And he rushed to his computer excitedly.
He made his orders fastidiously
And used his mouse quite delicately
To order in industrial quantity
Much sparkly shiny finery.
He worked for hours quite determinedly
And was ready and finished eventually.
He even hired a celebrity
To come and switch on the electricity.
The enormous tree at Number Three
Was the finest in the vicinity!
It increased his popularity
And money was raised for charity
But he did vow unreservedly,
Next year the tree from Number Three
Would be chosen by him personally
At a garden centre locally.
