An Uphill Struggle

An Uphill Struggle

I find it difficult to cope
With Sainsbury’s being on a slope
Fruit and veg is run-of-mill
But other things are up the hill

I worry that one careless day
My set of wheels might roll away
On Saturday I nearly died
While trolleying up that mountainside

Has Surbiton another shop
With such a noticeable drop?
For any time I’m running late
I have to face that one-in-eight

I dream some day I’ll reach the wine
But it is high up the incline
So steep you feel the need for crampons
When you’re buying packs of thingamies
