Pay Day

Better be the con man
Than his mark there is no doubt

Except he’s going into debt
And the mark is getting out

Many lives ago their roles
Were switched so now he’ll pay

For what he had conned out of him
On that cold unlucky day

So if one day you pester me
with lessons set to rhyme

I hope I recognize the debt
I owe you at that time

If I don’t the thing will just
Keep going, what a bore

And we’ll engage in doggerel
Like this for ever more
