“Satanic Sales”

I’m a con man, a gangster,
I will sell you this pill.
I will fool you and bribe you,
And tempt you – I will.

I’m a surgeon, so invasive,
I will slice my way in.
I get deep in your wallet,
And under your skin.

I’m a lover and a hairdo,
And a car you must have,
And I tug on your heart strings,
‘Till you want me so bad.

I’m a restaurant, your new shoes,
But I’m not who you think,
I am slippery and smooth,
Like a happy hour drink.

I’m your ego, half a minute,
I’m a very good liar,
I’m the ad on your TV,
And I’m spreading desire.
