While those around him were going mad
he stood completely still
then he saw what he was looking for
picked it up and went to the till.
The madness took him by surprise
it was truly beyond belief
so when he’d found what he wanted
he’d left with a sigh of relief.
Things were thrown and tempers flared
it was well beyond the pail
and that was the only visit he made
to a January sale.
