We set out to buy a hat with a voucher

A fedora, a trilby or maybe a sloucher.

To do just that we went to a shop

To spend just that voucher and then to stop.

We were shown a hat that seemed to suit

It looked quite good and fitted to boot.

But then we were told to pay more dough

Than the amount that our voucher did quite clearly show.

We called the manager just to say

That this would embarrass those unable to pay.

The manager just laughed and said “That’s our whole point

To belittle poor people who can’t afford to shop in this joint”.
