“Let me take a drag beforehand to look cooler.”
I don’t work for cheap, that’s true.
But I get the job done, and done well too.
There’s an idea and it’d be good if it dies?
Arrange the payment and close your eyes.
How do I work? You don’t want to know
Just describe the target and cough up the dough.
It’s one of yours? Well that’s a first.
You want to live your passion, lifelong nursed,
Of traveling the world and painting with oil
To avoid the rat race and mind-numbing toil?
Alright, I see, this won’t take long.
Just kick back and relax, we can’t go wrong.
I will now come closer and whisper some words
They will kill the idea of being free as birds.
Listen closely and listen well, sonny:
“With this idea you can’t make money.”
Now it’s dead, put the payment in the pot
As agreed, 15 gummy bears, fresh and hot.
Have a nice life, son, and do come back
If you ever fall off the too-well-beaten track.
