After Poundland’s recently reported spat with Thameslink perhaps we should take a look at its service.
The Poundland name perhaps implies,
To people who think they are wise,
That everything should cost around,
A British – that is Sterling – pound.
And maybe one time that was right,
When one could tell by means of sight,
That this must have been Poundland’s aim,
’Cos all its prices were the same.
But maybe this is not still so,
Because if in their shops you go,
You’ll find most prices one pound, or
In several cases rather more.
I don’t deny that things one pound,
In their shops and on line abound,
But if you on their website go,
Look for a bag of Bonio,
Most likely for your dog to eat,
It’s two pounds for this canine treat.
And although that is pretty rum,
It seems there is still more to come:
A set of bedding for the bed,
Will leave you five pounds in the red.
So Poundland could just clear the air,
So everything is fair and square,
And maybe they should make it plain,
That Poundsland now could be their name.
Or, since the price they seem to round,
Up or down to a complete pound,
Perhaps it would now make more sense,
From now to call themselves ‘No Pence’.
