Paperchase closing so I got new pens
as it seemed the right thing to do
besides there's the fact that your stationary store
is never enough quite for you
And then there's the label that's there on on the box
to remember this lovely store by
so after the pens are spent and no more
I'll still have that to comply

The ‘Paperchase’ brand started in 1968 but went into administration in the UK in January 2023. The brand and intellectual property though has been purchased by Tesco, so it may not be quite the final demise of this wonderful stationary that many of us feared.
