Hawking one's wares ...

So folks stop and stare
Do we dare
To infect there ...

To color poetic works
And thus, earn perks ... ?
It is not an answer ...
To starvation mastered

There are other ways ...
To earn some praise
Better solutions offered
To fill those empty coffers

Something will come along
Publishers will sing your song
Wanting to take over the work
Placing it under covers that perk

Wait for the time ...
It's in a stage primed
Polished and presented
Hawking wares unprevented
