I despise you

The flea on the dog
Aphid in the garden
Disease that turns into plague

Wasn't to pleased we did business with you
Was out of my control, 
Had to watch the news
He comes in my room
Look of disgust on his face
Units being returned
Okay, no big deal
They never reached the shelves
Gamblers disadvantage seems unreal
You reported units sold
Numbers don't add up
Some underpaid worker
Wasn't properly trained on your scanner

It's seeing loved ones hurt
16 hours days, 
Sorting through sheisty  distributors
No first grade teacher telling you how to read a contract
It's brutal
It's full of life
So when someone really screws you over
You're lungs clench, 
They bite
Hard to breathe
Hard to see 

Wedding coming up, 
Bills wont adjust
You've made it hard
Your business tactics
Make broke so abrupt

I try to keep my head high
Attitude optimistic
Trying to make a dent in the world
Hard when you're a role model for retailers
They'll be sure to follow suit

The real fear 
Companies don't learn
Brick n Mortar stores will bump up churn
Because the leader of the pack
Decided to cut prices and help
High price of Low Cost, 
Still cant fit my emotions into words. 

Big picture,
Big release for us
Small in comparison to others
Can't imagine the look on big distributors face
When they got their numbers, 
Want Walmart to burn in hell
Still wouldn't be even
