Community Work

With family despairing, and friends all gone
Bleary eyes, chipped nails, and robe undone
She’s shopping and shipping and having fun,
Clicking on eBay’s latest, greatest deals.

With paying up front, no tally-man calls
Just the payment of the credit card bills.
Tesco and Next all deliver flowers
To wipe away her honey’s glowers,
As the screen devours her erotically;
She’s spending rather than making money
Debt spiralling as she’s drawn cosily
To the desire-full bosom of the Internet selling community.
