One deceived salesman

I heard the truth was different from what I know

I heard you laughing as did Romeo

But then, again, there is a dirty flow

in which you roll

and roll

and all your sides

enrapture all the vile vibes

but you do not divide

you’re whole

I’m mesmerized

But I won’t try

to get you out

because I tried once

and it suck me down

and more – you sold me out

and down

you sold me down the river

and it was for months that I shivered

and yet

I am in debt

for I preferred your cigarettes

to other more vigorous assets.
