Our preoccupation with what has now become the preeminent sales 'tool' makes us easy prey.

Gather ‘round people

grab your neighbor too

I got something right here

good for all of you

Are you feelin’ poorly

like you’re close to death?

Got ingrown nails?

Do ya have bad breath?

Are there places on your head

where the hair don’t sprout?

Can’t sleep at night

or got a bad case of gout?

Well I got the remedy!

Yes I got the cure!

Work for all of you

Of that I am sure

The answer is simple

No it ain’t complex

Just 3 little letters

and the last is ‘x’

Yes 3 little letters

and the last is ‘x’


Do you get up often

in the middle of the night?

Do you got bad gas?

Are you losing your sight?

Do you snore so loud

makes your wife’s ears ring?

Well for both of you

I got just the thing

You see the cure is simple

No it ain’t complex

Just 3 little letters

and the last is ‘x’

Yes 3 little letters

and the last is ‘x’


Do you got a club foot?

How about a bad back?

Afraid to leave the house

or step on a crack?

Do you see stars

when you close your eyes?    

Well the antidote

won’t come a surprise

It’ll put money in the bank

and make you grow tall

A bit overweight?

No problem at all!

It’ll make the sun shine

And the rain go away

Like sweet Lady Luck

it will make your day!

See the answer is simple

The cure ain’t complex

but against all ills

it surely protects

So come a bit closer

let me give it to you

If you’re good and ready

here’s all you gotta do…

If it were only that easy but you sure painted this poem with the snake oil some have tried to sell us.
