Trip of Tribulation

I spent my day shopping with Ruby (I find her an absolute pain) Torturous tale to transmit truthfully You'll kindly let me explain... Friday I purchase veg and fruit routinely A schedule pleasing to retain Ruby put a spanner in habit supremely Consumed by cranky campaign Fondling each ripe piece - ridiculous Their intact skin forsaken Commentary made us conspicious My cheeks stung pink as bacon Fumbling excursion injected remorse In friendly familiar domain Ruby's cruel fruit critiquing discourse Done with utter disdain Finally (red faced), we got to register - feat she pulled when paying Whole shop hushed as a seminar Short change accusation relaying In dulcet tones in foyer, I refuted it Calm voice rigorous to contain Ruby's shrill insisted the fruit was s**t Plus she'd have to check coins again Adament she had been ripped off - I found the debarcle innane Cash register accuracy blatantly scoffed Treatment of clerk barely humane Pressed lipped shoppers regarded us A pair of loons, I shaking frustrated Hoped the dear got hit hard by a bus! Notched her up to cousin most hated 3rd August 2020 Written for Contest : I Went Shopping With Ruby Sponsor : Julia Ward
