                 The incident

I stood on line with a purchase one day.
Ninth from the end and in for a stay.
But that was no problem I could wait,
T'was looking around that altered the state.

I searched around for something to see
And saw an old man in silk pongee,
Seize a card and sneeze in the middle.
And he closed each end on the dribble.

He took the envelope put it inside
And looked around if anyone spied.
Got on line with the calmest facade
And paid the girl and purchased the card.

I was so enthralled I followed him out,
He trashed the card and turned about.
He deposited it in the trash by the door,
Then went right back to shop in the store.

My simple conclude or my only decree,
Is cover your actions what ever they be.

Haha, I like this poem, it made me laugh.
Did it come to you, or did you actually see an old man do this?

Great poem
