Tall Tales: Sweet-talker

I asked for poppies.
The poppy is a flower.
You sell flowers, do you not?
What about “poppies” can you not understand?
P. O. P. P. Y.

Am I speaking in tongues?
Have you thistles in your ears?

If you haven’t any poppies,
(but you do have poppies?)
if you haven’t any poppies,
say as much, I’ll find another.

Daisies are lovely.
You must have daisies.
You can spell “daisy,” I trust?

If you cannot spell “daisy”
then I do not want them.

Is there any flower
you know how to spell?
