A Mean Business

Spend a bit extra receive a little more In life’s cutthroat sale and thrifty superstores No free dinners It’s all in your head For each slice gained the rest gets no bread Gives back a cent keeping all the rest Huge ponzi schemes pay crumbs as interest Always leave tips they go a long way Bosses can pay less and make tons of hay Mark these words or use a highlighter By omitting fullstops save ink for the writer By David Kavanagh
