Basket only, 10 items or less,
Self-scan tills, they cause all sorts of stress.
Standing in line, has the ice cream thawed?
Should I be at this till – is this really queue fraud?
I’ve noticed a can that I hadn’t counted,
and now two more – my baskets amounted!
Should I put some back, do you think she has seen?
cos it’s 10 items or less and now I‘ve thirteen.
I start to count up all the baskets in front,
but not one of them is pulling this stunt.
They have just enough, 10 items or less,
and I start to panic, to worry, obsess.
Do I put them back, or move to that till?
Do I just stay put and try to chill?
If she says something about it, will I laugh or shout,
but really and truly I need to chill the f**k out!
I’m not going to prison, it’s hardly a crime,
but this foolish behaviour does make a good rhyme.
It’s all in my head so the concept is flawed,
cos really there’s no such thing as queue fraud!
