Hypnotist

I listened as you spoke
Gums flapping in the breeze
Words slipping off the tongue
Expressed with so much ease

Your verbal gymnastics 
Deserve a perfect ten
I ask you one question
You repeat it all again

Your words enchant me
I listen while you sell
Some kind of hypnosis
I respond to your spell

I bow to your persuasion
Your rythm my blues
I want what you're selling
This thing I won't use

As I open my checkbook
The spell starts to break 
My brain starts working
When my hand starts to shake

    Hi Richard, I really liked this, actually like looking at myself quite a few times. Luckilly I too realised just in the nick that something didn;t quite ring true. This piece held my interest all the way through, I actually wanted the next line to come, the strange thing is I'm not impatient. just wait a few seconds. The gift of the gab, some have it, some don't and some can use it for shifty enterprises. I really enjoyed the read. Have a good day. Catch you olater. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    I am in the Automotive business so I am not willing to provide an antidote, it could put us out of business.
