The Shopping Centre – by Katie

The beep, the clunk

The colours in chunk

The signs, the cries

The hot meat pies

The movement, the sound

The displays going round

Parents chasing,

Children racing,

Men are pacing!

They to and fro

And come and go

Money to spend,

Things to mend

Driving me quietly

Round the bend!!

I wrote this poem whilst I was working in a shopping centre on the south side of Brisbane. Circa 2005
