Charlatans

I'm sick of mean minded people who prey on the weak and the old. Who use every rip-off trick in the book trying to turn crap into gold. They target the vulnerable in society, with their scams, cons and sharp practice. With promises of riches or something for nothing with underhand 'legal' tactics. Along with the 'friendly' loan companies, who charge usurers interest rates. They're the dregs of the Earth, of questionable birth, and I doubt if they have any mates. Why do we have to put up with them? Hiding behind legalese. They're morally bankrupt, leech like, corrupt, and degrade humankind with their sleaze.

Hello John … the email system and phones drive me crazy with as you say so called riches. Once I played along but now, ignore the lot. This is a great poem in these times of the internet scammer - thanks John - Lindsay
