Natl Poetry Month, Day 11, Scammers
They’re smooth and slick
A face you’d trust, they’re even on T.V.
They lurk in your neighborhood, stalk you on the phone
Inundate your email, you’re never left alone
Take the "big deal," you'll make a million bucks
You won't have to do a thing, just load up the truck
No, it's not a pyramid, it just looks that way
Invest and it will make you rich, just for pennies a day
This pill will do you wonders, who's the FDA?
A hungry child in Uruguay, someone has to pay
All of them are scammers, eyeing up your dough
They’ll fleece you while they shake your hand,
Count your fingers; count your toes
Here are some simple rules, to prevent this sleight of hand
Spend on self-indulgence and just don’t give a damn,
You’ll be happier with your vices instead of being scammed.
