On a Hot Day and a Smelter

There is in Qatar or Dubai a friendly aluminum smelter for sale,
I have never owned an aluminum smelter, the one pictured in
the TV advert looks ok. Now that my wife is on holiday, I have
time to cruise on the TV, but this is the first time I have come
across a smelter. I buy food at a deli and warm it up at home,
the food taste just as my wife’s cooking. Not that I have seen
her peel potatoes, she just opens the kitchen door and hollers:

“Food’s ready, come and get it!  I have had many cars, all old
ones, this mainly cause I can’t pay for anyone chauffeuring me
about, nor have I money to buy a new car every year.

Aluminum smelter! Wouldn’t that be something? I met a man
in a bar, said he was a retired poet. Not well paid, I presumed,
same old suit, gone shiny and green by age. Told him about
the affable smelter in Dubai, speculated what it would cost to
buy one? (No price mentioned in the advert) The ex. poet paid
no attention, through the bar’s window he had seen a donkey
with straw hat walking past, and regretted his retirement.
