Pick and Mix

Pick & Mix
 

Oh Frank. W. Woolworths what have you done,

You have taken away all of the fun.

Buying the traditional Pick & Mix,

Was a yearly ritual like the turkey and stuffing mix,

Trying to cram as many as you could

 Into the large cardboard tub.

Trying to be canny

 and fill every nook and cranny,

Toffees, chocs, jellies, dolly mixtures, shrimps & white mice,

They all tasted really nice.

It only cost £2 99 for the lot

It was up to you how many you got,

Now it is to be no more

Having asked at several of your stores.

Gone now is the tub you could fill with as many as you like.

It’s A bag and weigh & pay, and on your bike.

Oh Frank. W. Woolworths what have you done,

You have taken away all of the fun.

    haha nice way of protesting, really love the way how a ridiculous idea sometimes blooms into such nice wording.
