I read my poetry this morning
on my BBC local radio station
a piece about shopping in pyjamas
a broadcast of 5 minutes duration

The nation is divided on this thorny subject
some shoppers can't be arsed getting dressed
other customers are horrified by their attire
their disagreeable disdain is often expressed

PJ wearers versus non nightwear customers
exchanging verbals in supermarket aisles
swapping differences of sartorial etiquette
trading snarling expressions rather than smiles

As I was lounging in loungewear in my lounge
"Do you wear loungewear?", said the presenter
"never beyond my garden gate", I thought
I admit to being a PJ shopper dissenter
Yes, BBC Radio Manchester allowed me on this morning
