Natl Poetry Month, Day 11, Scammers

Today's poem is more in the humorous mode for something a little different.


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.
