Wordsworth up to date

I wondered lonely as a cloud
Two metres from the madding crowd
When all at once my name was called
To enter Waitrose hallowed hall

This was the pensioners’ special hour
I'd gone to get a bag of flour
But I forgot when through the door
What I had gone to Waitrose for

The Waitrose staff are extra kind
I told them it had slipped my mind
They asked what else I had forgot
They clearly thought I'd lost the plot

I phoned my wife again to ask
She reminded me of this special task:
"I need some flour to bake a cake
with all that cream you made me take"

"Ah yes, I recall" I had to lie
I dared not ask what flower to buy
But then I saw them next the tills -
A bunch of golden daffodils!
