On the first day of Poppytide, TfL gave to me,
an @AspinalofLondon bag.
On the second day of Poppytide, TfL gave to me,
a @TimeOutLondon Card and tickets to @WinterWonderLDN.
On the third day of Poppytide, TfL gave to me,
an afternoon tea @hotelcaferoyal and tickets to @WarHorseOnStage.
On the fourth day of Poppytide, TfL gave to me,
tickets to @TheLondonEye and tickets for @ThamesRIBExp.
On the fifth day of Poppytide, TfL's prize descriptions got a bit longer,
tickets to Sea Life @london_aquarium and an experience on the flight simulator & a ride on @EmiratesAirLDN.
On the sixth day of Poppytide, TfL really caught the sombre mood,
tickets to Bond in Motion@ldnfilmmuseum and one of @PenhaligonsLtd fragrances for ladies or gents.
On the seventh day of Poppytide, TfL's highly appropriate gifts were
go climbing with @archclimbing and tickets to Vogue 100: A Century of Style @NPGLondon.
On the eighth day of Poppytide, TfL's Twitter feed started making value judgements,
a dinner cruise @citycruises – a brilliant river experience - and a Sushi-making class @YOSushi.
On the weekend of Remembrance Sunday, TfL's prize raffle took a rest,
because promoting brands at a time of national reflection would be crass.
On the ninth day of Poppytide, TfL came back with a splash,
a night’s stay & breakfast for 2 at the InterContinental @ICParkLane and a chance to race for free with @RevolutionKarti.
On the tenth day of Poppytide, TfL dug deep into the prize draw barrel,
an amazing prize from @goodlifeeatery and a Street Art Tour with @AlternativeLdn.
On the eleventh day of Poppytide, on the morning of Armistice Day,
TfL's marketing department decided enough was probably enough.
(no, I'm only kidding, today's prizes are tickets for @rooftopfilmclub Underground Film Club and dinner or lunch for two worth £100 @Galvin_brothers)
Lest we forget.
