Grandmama, on holiday,
Visited a gallery.
Art, she said, was not for her,
What she really would prefer
Would be to purchase a machine
That stitched a perfect winter scene
To hang upon her bedroom wall,
Or even in her entrance hall.
Her grandson, ruthless brain at work,
Thought he’d found the perfect perk;
He’d build the system very cheap,
(But make his pricing very steep
To fleece his Grandma of her wealth
And then, by steps, her wits and health)
As he started plans in motion,
Grandmama perceived his notion.
She raised her hand, said, ‘Thank you, dear,
It strikes me it would be quite drear
To look at winter all the year.
I’ll buy instead a moving frame,
Digital is I think its name,
Then no two days will be the same.
Duplicity is the road to Hell.’
She smiled, he frowned, they said ‘Farewell.’
