The January sales


M&S showed me a down escalator,

Whereon I embarked,

arising to new depths.

Certainly, there was a Fall

Involving ladies’ underwear

(Sparse as it was)

How then might I rise?

Not by Marx or Spencer

Or any sales in town:

Progress, evolution;

But only by that tree

From which he

Disdained come down
