Career Salesmen

By Abel Ashes (All rights reserved)


Some people sell Chinese food.

Some people sell religion.

Some people sell discount shoes.

Some people sell superstition.

Some people sell billboard space.

Some people sell heroin.

Some people sell guns to crazy people.

Some people sell guns to terrorists.

Some people sell chocolate fudge.

We’re just a bunch of temporary organisms

Brought to life by sexual orgasms

Selling ideas and materials

So we can feed our faces and rest our bones

With the treasures we drag from our toil back into our homes.
