a salesman

a daily poetry movement. Todays selection is: a salesman by e.e cummings. Think We've Met subhuman rights Before? Why do we work? Does work breed laziness and a lack of productivity? Maybe the biggest scam was the selling of work? Some tribes around the world spend days straight reciting poetry- because they have the time! Do you know you great grandfathers story? then why do you know washingtons, jeffersons, and the simpsons, what have they sold
a salesman

a salesman is an it that stinks Excuse

Me whether it's president of the you were say
or a jennelman name misder finger isn't
important whether it's millions of other punks
or just a handful absolutely doesn't
matter and whether it's in lonjewray

or shrouds is immaterial it stinks

a salesman is an it that stinks to please

but whether to please itself or someone else
makes no more difference than if it sells
hat condoms education snakeoil vac
uumcleaners terror strawberries democ
ra(caveat emptor)cy superfluous hair

or Think We've Met subhuman rights Before

can salesmen be considered to be sellouts of the race they represent? i think so. IMO, people in sales (or those people who are enrolled in the many business college programs) are selllouts for certain obvious reasons.
