Pitchman: The Merchant of Lies

Why do you continue to taunt?

What is it that you want?

I walk as if I maunder.

You continue to flaunt.

It deeply cuts as it is flagrant.

I deeply hate it as when I am nigh, you are rancidly fragrant.

And so I feel trapped as if I remain in some gaunt.


Why won't you let me be?

You leave me in a state of insanity.

Leaving me to maunder.

I know you were deceived.

Don't you have any comity?


The lies I know you have bought.

From the merchant of greed and rot.

What of this gullish cack,

Do you expect me to believe?

Impregnating your very mind so much that you appear to be crassulently conceived.

And I hate you and your every thought.


As you are the one who purchases from the merchant that I despise.

The one who purchased you.

And sold you just as others, as propagandists of lies.

And only I, can sense your cries.

But you find this all recondite.

And so I cannot remain commonplace.

I will not remain polite.


And so I call you stupid and a fool.

As unlike you I am not viewing this all as abditive.

I shalln't abide.

For there is no good abodement.

Nary a wholesome abodement from the Merchant of such lies.

The one full of greed.

Full of a bog's mire and clay.

The merchant with a head adorned ever cornigerous that has a will of a pitchman.

And you have fallen for a trust that exerts what pries.

And I must apologize for I cannot remain commonplace for the both of you I must now despise.
