It Twas an Open and Shut Case

Whether you’re a budding crime writer on the tip of success

With a case signed sealed and delivered and a publisher to impress

Or a worker who is stuck with the straight nine-to-five

a perpetual engine hell bent to survive

Seeking an alternative to the cut and the thrust

escape the insanity or they feel they’ll combust.

 

Or the teenager filled with angst-ridden scorn

a hormonal soul that cannot conform

Driven by adults in a world they despise

and mountains of homework, with little time to revise

 

So what do you say will cure their ills.

Why a desk from our fare Showroom would alter their path

For the budding crime writer to finish his draft

or the commuter stuck with his straight nine-to-five

who can now work from home

with more time on his side.

And least we forget the teenagers distress

who parents will be thankful to hide all that bl**min clutter and mess!

 

Tis now a case of what style to choose:

From the polished vintage thirties, with industrial curves

Black rubber surface and plenty of drawers

To the striking rosewood with its illuminating grain

gently tapered feet and classic seventies design.

Case closed.
