He wrote his story for a high, flat fee
About a ring of thieves he stumbled on.
With lavish words he penned the mystery,
The Vessel of Deception: A Great Con.
Came out in paperback on Amazon.
But soon it was blacklisted, to his shock.
A gaudy old reviewer named Bad John,
His words like aching tooth smacked by a rock.
But to that writer, seemed like just a prank.
His thousands were already in the bank.
