Sleeping in Clockwork Corvettes

My Shopping List

Trolley wheel sticks and keeps turning left
Rumble of the evening express rolls on by
Crisps and frozen pizzas stacked everywhere
Robots are sleeping in clockwork corvettes

Grocery shopping on an Autumn Eve
Jet trails emblazon the darkening sky
Ketchup bottles fall and hit my feet
Lecherous computers scan customers

Lost in thought as arguing couples pass
This auto check out is giving me stress
Petrol fumes rise from cracked pavement
Cathode ray tubes irradiate a cold night

My shopping list is still on the kitchen counter
Terrible TV shows scream through airwaves
Neighbours having a party tonight, as always
Crystal radio sets purr with messages of love
