The supermarket backed onto an ally
Where I would meet Peaches and Sally
We’d forage for a meal
Damaged goods sans protective seal
What would Millet make of our glean?
Would he photograph the scene?
Upload it as gritty commentary
And go viral while remaining sedentary
It may cause uproar at the inequality
We’d have a hashtag titled #grittyreality
But the next big thing would come along
And interest in us would sing its swan song
