a salesman is an it that stinks Excuse
 
Me whether it’s president of the you were say
or a jennelman name misder finger isn’t
important whether it’s millions of other punks
or just a handful absolutely doesn’t
matter and whether it’s in lonjewray
 
or shrouds is immaterial it stinks
 
a salesman is an it that stinks to please
 
but whether to please itself or someone else
makes no more difference than if it sells
hate condoms education snakeoil vac
uumcleaners terror strawberries democ
ra(caveat emptor)cy superfluous hair
 
or Think We’ve Met subhuman rights Before
