So often
And sadly
Too often
This salesman existence
Wears thin

I can see
Through my skin
Into you
Your reason for being
And soul

I counter
And cajole
And convince
You must know this ritual

Don't dawdle
Drag it out
Go ahead

Your ego
From your mouth

***- I sometimes have to make a sales pitch to rather self-important people.
