Nothing On Sale

In our local shopping centre
There is a store selling nothing
You can buy it in empty bags
Make sure they put enough in
All of this life’s empty hopes
Are sitting there on the shelves
Just waiting for the customers
To come and help themselves
The windows are all so clean
And walls brilliant and white
For the cleaners do a good job
Keeping this nothing just right
But be sure to get there early
For they are having a big sale
And even if you have everything
You know only nothing can prevail

Going to that empty shop
With nowt on sale
Is just the shop for many
With empty pockets - empty wallet
Plastic cards cashed out
The empty shop soutes all today

Although sad, I enjoyed reading how you write.

"You can buy it in empty bags

Beautiful!
