Terry scans the paper, feeling pleased
About the tales of cruel dismemberment.
The local folk are scared and that unease
Lets Terry move into his element.
See, Terry has a certain expertise –
Though he’s no thug or reckless malcontent.
His finances were bad and he felt squeezed,
But now he has the means to pay his rent.
He’s not a contract killer – don’t be daft!
He sells alarms and home security.
He also does surveillance. It’s a craft,
And murder boosts the business. Don’t you see?
The market moves and he must move with it,
Exploiting people’s fears to sell his shit.
