Complaints Department Please  

Mavis Morecambe in a pickle
The problem that she had
Was everything was going right
This really made her mad

She wanted sunny weather
The sun had shone all day
She craved a nice cooked breakfast
She'd received one on a tray

Her husband must have read her mind
He'd bought a paper too
Usually she had cause to moan
But today this wasn't true

The brand new book she'd ordered
Had arrived with a second free
It was one that she really wanted
No way - this cannot be

She checked her lottery numbers
She couldn't believe her eyes
A tidy sum of money
Well that's a big surprise

She had the radio station tuned
Mavis couldn't help but smile
They were playing all her favourites
Then she pondered for a while

I need to get to that place in town
Known as Complaints Department
So up she got, donned shoes and coat
Shut the door of her apartment

She briskly walked, entered the mall
And quickly found the place
More often than not there would be a queue
Right now though, not the case

Many smiling faces here
Waiting to hear her plight
How can I help you madam
Is everything alright?

No everything is not alright
For everything's been fine
Nothing has gone wrong today
Which is why I've come to whine

From when I woke, to me standing here
The whole day has been great
For a soul like me who loves to gripe
Well that really does frustrate

It feels so strange and alien
When wishes go to plan
So I'll get to the point, without delay
And as quickly as I can

The reason why I'm moaning see
Is because I can't complain
I've nothing to complain about
And it's driving me insane...

Let me add my chuckles to Rod's, S. This is hilarious. I have worked in Customer Service before, and it would definitely have been lovely to have this kind of "complaint" In Line 1, do you need an 's?

Good Moaning
Really amusing piece, I was going to say "Little piece" but that would have been wrong. Very well written and a subject that actually is quite common. I do believe it is more common in the female, if they can't find something to moan about then stand by or run. definitely spotlight worthy and it has brought humour to a very miserable day here. (Heavy rain) there, I can moan about the weather so me and Mavis have something in common. take care. Rod.

I think moaning is justified to some extent, but perhaps some do it more than necessary. Hope you are well, and thank you kindly for your words.
