Thanks For Throwing My Bananas, Denise!

10-30-18

Back in those halcyon days
when Rainbow was still open
An occasional cashier was cranky
or else she was mopin’

In any case, it doesn’t matter
I was buying bananas and things
The cashier rushed through my order
All items up she did ring

Sadly, she treated my bananas
like pariahs in a dump
She scanned my bananas and tossed them
and they landed with a thump

I can tell you that I’m not happy
Thanks for throwing my bananas, Denise!
I feel slighted, no, benighted
I think, shopping here I should cease!

There weren’t many nearby stores
for me to go grocery-shopping
If I no longer shopped here, it would mean
a lot of on-bus hopping

Thanks for throwing my bananas, Denise!
Crap, don’t they pay you enough?
I don’t like coping with cranky cashiers
or anyone who gives me guff

I wondered if this was the start
of the end of the Rainbow fleet
And once again, I must declare:
Thanks for throwing my bananas, Denise!
