Doorstep Delivery Services — DDS
POETRY FORMAT, 14 Jun 2021
The economy has shriveled so much
That DDS have been launched
But we should know DDS of what
Of Home Made Food
Of — Of What?
Do not worry,
We will explain one by one
Of groceries because
The House holder won’t be able to complain that they are not fresh
Of Wine because
People drink and drive resulting in many accidents
Persons cannot walk away with the new pair leaving the old pair behind
Women photograph themselves in a necklace uttering – It is old fashioned
Of Home Made Food
How can food be Home Made, if it is not cooked in your own Home?
Let us forget DDS
And think about better ways to improve the economy
By buying a hundred pairs of heels
to compete with the High heeled
By wining and dining and falling sick
Newer Hospitals being built in a quick
By making necklace of currency notes,
Creating new presses printing the notes
By posting banners of
Home Made Eateries
on major city Streets
By allowing monkeys to jump on trees
Openly and boosting banana sales
