A short poem about shopping locally and why I prefer it to shopping at a supermarket out of town where you end up in a queue


Bakers,butchers down my street,
All the shopping at my feet,
On the corner is a store,
Where I shop more and more,

Out of town are super stores,
Where I shop no more,
A car is needed to get there,
And the bus you need a fare.


I keep my shopping close to home,
And even order on the phone,
Many shops will deliver goods,
Most items including foods,

Super shops make you queue,
Loosing time is true,
So I am happy with my street,
With the shops at my feet.

Walking places is a more spiritual approach to shopping,l. when people drive to the chain supermarkets they cannot help but to join everyone else in their hurrying, even if they aren't crunched for time.

I enjoy walking to the liquor store, i seem to find more inspiration while walking. Good read.

Now that we are living in the country, I do miss being able to walk just down the street to get to places. Very nice. Thank you for sharing.:)
