STRAWBERRY SEASON

Now if all the idiots out there putting pins and needles into fruit wanted to do something really noteworthy - I beg you - put them into Tim Tams and Mars bars In the meantime folks if you want a fruit salad best go buy your apples, peaches, grapes etc right now ... time is running out ....just #cutthemup

STRAWBERRY SEASON .. © Maureen Clifford

We’ll all be doomed," said ABC
In accents most forlorn
Outside the supermarket
One frosty Sunday morn.

The customers all stood about,
Coat-collars to the ears,
And talked of ruined strawberries
and of their greatest fears.

"It’s lookin’ crook," the manager spoke;
" all berries we're recalling
bananas are under the pump
the price of fruit is falling"

"It’s bad, all right," said Mr Coles,
such an astute remark
"My displays are now full of holes
from this foolish skylark"

And so with round the countryside
paranoia running rife,
some folks stopped buying #strawberries.
"Just slice them with a knife"

Was heard from those with common sense,
"don't throw out and destroy
a farmers livelihood and fruit
please common sense deploy'

The farmers were not happy
all their hard work down the drain.
"We’ll all be rooned," said Channel 9,
No strawbs, nana's or rain.

Thank you Mahalia & did those destroyers wonder ,how many of those diligent Strawberry pickers ended up needing delicate surgery for the very painful Trigger Finger or Fingers?!

Thanks Mahalia! A nice commentary on something so horribly stupid. I can't imagine where these malicious ideas come from.
However, I do hope none of these idiots does decide to stick sharp things in TimTams or Mars bars 8-[

What is this world coming to when numbskulls do criminal acts of vandalism like this with no regard for the innocents that might be harmed by their vicious and malicious actions?. I hope they find the culprit(s) and jail them for a long, long time.

Your solution Terra would solve all the ills of the world :heeheehee I confess at time I have also expressed the view that perhaps the bloke upstairs should just eliminate the lot of us and start again and perhaps (with the weather conditions,droughts, tornado's :eek , eruptions etc etc ) he is of a like mind.
Thanks folks for reading and commenting :text-thankyou:
