#26 - Exploitation for Personal Gain

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.
