I pop into Sainsbury's it was easy to see,
After dropping grandson off at college.
Being diabetic it was easy for me,
Picking up things that I'd want to put in my trolley.

The prices they had I thought weren't too high,
My lactose milk has gone up to 1.25.
Although in lidl's it was 89 p,
I was just at the till I started to shake.

My diabetes was telling me I needed to eat,
So I went to the cafe walking to and fro.
Then read a sign it's permanently closed,
So until when, Most times to Sainsbury's.
I won't go, Until they open a cafe,
That's permanently closed.

A common problem is this, Alan. It annoys me over here where I live. Your poem made me realise the other side of this though, how it might effect someone with hypoglycemia symptoms. I';d never thought about that. I bet if you complained they'd tell you to buy a packet of biscuits!
Don't know about you, but I find they always have a **** answer!

Alan, so sorry to hear that the cafe was closed, especially at a time when it was needed. Hope that other shops prove more accommodating.
