At the Mendacious Market

 

 

 

 

 

 

They sell you lies – and, buddy, are you buying!

You’d think that they were selling immortality.

Though they deny, there’s really no denying

They sell you lies.  And, buddy, are you buying!

You must smell something deeply satisfying

In all their tedious and cheap venality.

They sell you lies – and, buddy, are you buying!

You’d think that they were selling immortality.
