One of the side effects of Covid
was a sharp increase in numbers of sharks,
especially among the human predator types.

Beware of these proverbial wolves
in sheep’s’ clothing who will sell you anything!
They see you as sacks of cash with feet.

It was that time of legal chicanery,
those days of the wild turkey, the Trump era.
The time Predators in search of quick profits

willingly sold their souls and your bodies
for less than the going rate of 30 pieces
of something for anything! Can I get an Amen?!?
