  Out far away in a town where I often go.
There happened to be a sly customer and a dumb cashier.
The cashier trance like as can be.
She recites next,next,next.
Thinking to herself oh me,me,me.
Customer exclaims what a beautiful shirt!
Cashier smiles giving too much change.
Customer waits with a grinning mouth.
Then he grabs the change and heads for the south!
This story has a moral for me and you.
Don't listen to a flatter when it isn't true : )
