“Hunger Games, Part Ate” (poem / poetry)

Welcome to your regular online food shop,

Good luck finding nearby delivery slots!

Go ahead, pick your shopping, put it in your basket,

Most items you need are… out of stock, granted.

If not, they could be by your delivery date…

We’re experiencing shortages, feel free to change,

Tech’ issues now mean you can’t check out, poor you!

Your slot’s expired, go to the back of the queue.

I know we’ve been asked to stay inside as much as possible, but online food shopping is literally a joke right now, the automated systems in place to facilitate it, are more unpredictable than deep sea exploration! One thing you can bank on though, getting messed about, and plenty of frustration.

In addition, you’re lucky if half of your shop actually turns up, and if you edit your order after placing it, due to things that you ordered days ago maybe, now being out of stock, you might lose your slot entirely, have to start from scratch, and be forced to wait even longer!

Safe to say, I’m far from happy! Their websites and servers need some serious updating and reinforcing. I really, really hope that things improve soon, not just for my sake, but for everyone else relying on this process too!

Anyway, enough of my venting! 😆🤣 I hope you guys are having a better time of things where you are!?!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
