The Deal (What Someone tried to Sell Me) – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.


You will receive what you need when I get what I want

This is how it is and not a taunt


I will guide and be the captain of this ship

Stay abroad or over the side, take a tip


Once you understand what it is, it’s all about me

Not concerned with your happiness or inner glee


Fortunate that I am with you

I control the ingredients of this brew


So sit at the table on my terms

Or be buried out back with the worms


The deal is fashioned so that I am the one in charge

My rules and what I say you cannot dodge


For I am the one who has total autonomy

My sign is Sagittarius from astronomy


I chime in-hear my voice

In my manhood, I rejoice


This is a deal that won’t be mine

So find someone else to spend your time
