I spy with my third little eye
a grifter, drifter peddling wares
and offered to the lowest common bidder
blind to hustles
of false consciousness and well-being.
You say you dig soba
but that diet of catfish
talks before you utter one word.
Good thing I did not sign the deal
before realizing the game you wear as a crown.
