Into Bodmin to shop

Tuesday is the only day
In the week
She can get into Bodmin to shop.

The carrots
On the vegetable stall
Are unusually large.

"How much do they cost per pound?"
She asks the stallholder.
"They cost 100 pence per pound,"
He says.

The woman picks up
Two of the largest carrots
And pushes them up
The man's nose.

"Why does this always happen
To me on a Tuesday?"
He cries.
