Marks & Spencer, Brenda, and the money lender

DRESSED LIKE A QUEEN, not like a teen, bargain basement a flop, rise to the top. Marks and Spencer is the place, for clothing of fine taste, reliable and chic, go take a peek. Stroll around town, much more than a pound, cash in abundant, never reluctant.

My style is supreme, not part of a team, I stand alone, no swinging on a pole. Classy lady I am, the Marks and Spencer glam, dressed in style, tarts tossed in a pile.

Not left to the imagination, nor revealed to the nation, lingerie worn by me, my husband’s plea. Not a lady of the night, just doing what’s right, thrusting and puffing, late night loving.

Food glorious food, always in the mood, quality assured, never ever flawed. Without the St Michael logo, it’s really a no-no, keep up appearance, never ever buy clearance.

Weekly allowance not lasting, I’m certainly not fasting, my secret helper, her codename is Delta. She’s always in a dash, when dropping off the cash, no interested included, she must be deluded.

Marks and Spencer is the place, for us with good taste, say no to sub-standard, but yes to high standards.
