Guru Man

The slick-talking guru

came in from the Coast

a data programmer

more cunning than most

He stepped into Marlowe’s

a bar off the Strip

as Happy Hour ended

he’d established a grip

An oil man from Houston

bought into the scheme

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Look out

here comes

The Guru Man

peddling a promise

like Peter Pan

You know he thinks

he’s Superman

but don't you just see

a slick con man!


An abandoned oil patch

became the grow op

Mexican migrants

slaved sun-up non-stop

The sitting senator

gave the endorsement

the old county sheriff

stopped drug enforcement

An upstanding business

sweet as ice cream

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Look out

here comes

The Guru Man

peddling a promise

like Peter Pan

You know he thinks

he’s Superman

but don't you just see

a slick con man!


The left hand’s in

the right hand pocket

You want the moon

he has the rocket

You want the stars

and you want the sun

Don't stick with him

you’ll get undone


One Monday in April

elections were fought

the slick-talking guru

was hastily bought

Witness protection

meant back to the Coast

to found God’s Church

of Our Holy Ghost

Service the starlets

skim off the cream

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Look out

here comes

The Guru Man

peddling a promise

like Peter Pan

You know he thinks

he’s Superman

but don't you just see

a slick con man!


Next shady venture

a widows’ date site

scam up-front money

before taking flight

Banks offshore

prevented all tracing

dollars got doubled

at crooked horse racing

Guru Man's playbook

big fish in the stream

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Look out

here comes

The Guru Man

peddling a promise

like Peter Pan

You know he thinks

he’s Superman

but don't you just see

a slick con man!

Watch out

avoid the G-Man’s team

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Watch out

avoid the G-Man’s team

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream


Watch out

avoid the G-Man’s team

Quick money!

No strings!

The

American

Dream
