On line Groceries

by | Feb 6, 2013 | Rondel | 0 comments

Now I buy groceries on line,
it’s so much easier that way.
When weather’s bad, at home I stay,
and order all my food and wine.

Everything fresh I buy is fine,
I am impressed, I have to say.
It’s so much easier that way,
now I buy groceries on line.

I’ll order usuals of mine,
and they will deliver next day,
then take the plastic bags away.
They’ll come any time after nine,
now I buy groceries on line.
