 Elsie`s Poetry



`Never mind the quality` is what they`d say
`Feel the width` that`s their kind of wordplay,
Men selling cheap cloth instead of good stuff  
These tempting words seemed to be enough.

A lot of people were taken in by the size
They never looked at the quality with their eyes,
So they bought it but they were not prepared
To admit that on examination they had erred.

They may have had a `lot` but a lot of what?
It was just poor quality goods that they got,
A lot of something is not always best
And doesn`t always leave people impressed.

Quantity is fine if the quality is not lost
But it`s not good to have quantity at any cost!!
