I Wish

kiko-camaclang-RkwpBigY0y4-unsplashPoems for greedies to relate to: one in North American parlance; the other UK vernacular.

With thanks to Kiko Camaclang for the use of the header image.

I wish I’d bought some cookies at the store
Though if I had they’d all be gone by now
And instead my wish would be
To have got some many many more

UK version

I wish I’d bought stronger biscuits at the shop
Not the ones that did just drop
Into the bottom of the cup
After what was at best a mediocre dunking 

I wish everyone is as merry as possible whether they celebrate Christmas or not x

Thanks for reading 🙂
