A Salesman's Lament

By John Aldred

Here is a collection
For your inspection
Test your detection
Voice your objection
But then on reflection
Taste the confection.

I accept your rejection
Note your complexion
Has a connection
With our faulty convection,
We have sent a direction
Requesting correction.

We trust our present selection
Which is for your protection
Against a bulging midsection
Will resume your affection
Stay your defection,
Note my mild genuflection.
Please taste the confection.
