Door to door, floor to floor,
walking, knocking, talking.
They have the most, least, best,
fastest, strongest, ever to pass the test.
Any or all to be had for a price- - -!
They are nice but never stop talking.
They can’t make a sale by walking.
Knuckles are sore from knocking.
They constantly practice the hawking.
Sales are a ratio of presentation,
so they give it without hesitation.
The goal is to sell total population.
Talk fast, close hard, get paid, don’t rile,
leave a card, and smile, smile, smile.
