The old lady was delighted
this was the love of her life
at last she was able to buy one
this machine would end her strife.
She always wanted to have one
a microwave would make things easy
she could now prepare an omelette
and make it nice and cheesy.
She made her lunch cooked her dinner
pressing the buttons with pleasure
heating and warming all day long
preparing and cooking without pressure.
She washed and polished her new found toy
made sure it was gleaming white
and every time the power went on
the old lady got a pure fright.
Then one day her toy was broken
distraught she called the technician
crying for hours missing her friend
patting it in recognition.
The engineer came she looked so tearful
as he said to her with a stern face
I'm afraid I have some bad news for you
she looked sad and tutted in disgrace.
The "chip" in the machine has gone
you have used it far too much
the old lady looked in horror at him
and dismissed his comment as such.
I can't understand she said in dismay
as she settled her head in her lap
The engineer looked at her in shock
as the old lady said "funny chap"
I do not cook chips in my oven
the engineer burst into tears
laughing and giggling the engineer left
and shared his tale for many years.
