Thrift Shopper

 

 

“I offer you excruciating pain!”
“I’ll settle for a lesser item, please:
what’s costliest you offer me in vain.”
“I offer you excruciating pain–
which your nerves will convey, sir, to your brain.
I’ll bring your consciousness right to its knees!
I offer you excruciating pain!”
“I’ll settle for a lesser item, please….”

 

 

–Tom Riley
