Supermarket Sisyphus

the uncle down at the Fairprice
sets about his Sisyphean task
pushing shopping carts can’t be nice
but to him it’s not too much to ask

he hauls trains of trollies up the floors
past glassy eyed shoppers trundling through the doors;
who having forgotten the proper use of hands;
push their scantily filled carts,
and merrily descend.
