The Haunting of the Supermarket

As old Miss Winterborn
Pushed the old trolley
Down the frozen-food aisle,
A ghostly packet of peas
Floated out of a freezer.

Her false teeth chattered
As a headless potato
Screamed at everyone.

A host of phantom baked beans
Rose to the roof, spilling their contents
On a cashier's head.

Then the newspapers woke up,
Rolled themselves up
And bashed some people's brains in.

As the manager rushed out of his office,
A transparent cornflakes packet
Dived, and swallowed him whole.

As he disappeared, he struggled
He couldn't get out
and he choked on mouldy cereal.
