How I save money by shopping online

The towelest towel that money can buy
The softest cotton, the quickest to dry
I just played my click-clicking part
I just added it to my cart
Thinking of stopping me? Don’t even try!

The Hobonichi Techo’s all the rage
The inkiest of inks won’t frazzle that page
I just played my click-clicking part
I just added it to my cart
Just shipping will kick you in the rib cage1

Wearingeul inks from Korea are lit
Didn’t ponder over them even a bit
I just played my click-clicking part
I just added them to my cart
Come April they’re gonna be a big hit.2

A silver coin, and then some copper ones
If I missed out I would be a dunce
I just played my click-clicking part
I just added it to my cart
I go on shopping, sticking to my guns

A first edition Jerome K Jerome
Another Sherlock Holmes, a weighty tome
I just played my click-clicking part
I just added it to my cart
Can never have too many books at home.

Every night to fall asleep, have to shop
Pens, inks, books, bags, random things, I can’t stop
I just played my click-clicking part
I just add it to my shopping cart
And then, I just click the X at the top!

This is my contribution to that wonderful genre of poetry that is exemplified by Father William!

Footnotes:
