Business before pleasure
Are you a big spender
Mortgaging your heart
For lustful endeavors
Straddling your bottom line
Leveraged with burgundy wine
She wants a quick merger
Before your numbers decline

    Oh very nice Xavier. I like the rhythm and flow of this piece. And the connotation between the business, the material, etc and the lust is brilliant. How quick and brutal it is, dangerous and ugly at times. This is really good, memorable lines. The two lines "She wants a quick merger/before your numbers decline." Is instantaneous, fast punch. It ends swiftly and skillfully with loads in between to decipher. Excellent! I'm impressed.
