A pirate, a chiseler
Street vendor at heart
A wheeler, a dealer
Conniving and smart.

Always an angle
A quick sleight of hand
Always a motive
A trick and a scam.

Not to be trusted
With secrets or gold
A charmer whose snake oil
Is easily sold.

Beware and forewarned
He knows what to do
He’ll take what he wants
And leave nothing for you.
