A hot day – though September's come
Blue skies - though rare – are number one
The heat is such my skin responds
It's honey-coloured – right for blondes!
The time is ripe for a quick spree
IKEA is the place to be
A series of 'fake' rooms display
Smart Swedish chic to take away...
The settings, well set out, entice;
New lamps and cushions would be nice
For storage they have bright ideas
Let's chill out in those easy chairs!
Kids' bunk beds and office space
Accessories are in your face!
Well-appointed kitchens are my thing
Mirrors new perspectives bring ...
The cafeteria is vast;
Mums and kids come trundling past
With modest prices for their range
Of household goods, just bring small change!
Spent too long browsing? Time is short?
Scandinavian goodies can be bought ...
The car park wasn't full today
But beware the crowds come Saturday!
