Poetry Here (Mostly)

Snake Oil Salesman


Cannot comprehend

why anyone buys

malevolent swill,

or appreciates

a rubbing of it in.

His hawker style

claims terrific results,

fantastic ingredients,

amazing potion,

disgraces other kinds.

He says he has the stuff

to cure what has gone wrong;

so-called master of our fate,

promised to make us feel great,

but nothing’s great so far.
