I hate going shopping and with good reason too
I can't think of anything I'd much rather do
For once a pleasure, a womans perogative they say
Is now just pure torture on a cold blustery day

To stand at the stall grasping your purse
Perish the thought there's nothing worse
With hands like ice and fingers so numb
It's hardly a wonder I'm looking so glum

The pain unrelenting no relief will commence
Fiddling with coins and dropping the pence
Got rid of the purse with the horrible clasp
But still have a problem with coins I can't grasp

I feel so clumsy that much is true
I get odd looks when I'm in a queue
A wave of embarrasment whilst waiting to pay
I'm sure they are saying "We haven't got all day"

Fingers frozen, feet like ice
A hot drink would be nice
But I can't go to the cafe coz I can't walk any more
The walk is too far and my feet are too sore
My hands are just throbbing and home is so far
I think I'll get back to my warm little car

Standing frustrated--- "Oh silly me"
I don't know which pocket I put my key
With fingers so white I can't feel at all
And then all bags on the floor they fall
With onions rolling and out come my wares
A man beside me just looks and stares

A shoppng nightmare and all too surreal
That's how a normal day for me woud feel
I'm really no use when my fingers are dead
It affects my whole body and even my head
I act so stupid, folk think I'm dumb
Surprising what happens when your fingers are numb

Finally home and so grateful I feel
Driving the car without feeling the wheel
It's even a challenge to open the door
And I'm not going out any more!
