I become a skeptic when I am online these days
I take nothing at face value, I feel I must appraise
You say you are a woman, it may well be untrue
You say your story’s true, perhaps its lies you spew
Things you claim to have for sale; not really there
Testimonials on your page, written just to snare
The price you quote, resembles not the final bill
The promises you make, that you will not fulfill
Ask for information you say that you’ll not share
Or tell me I won’t be contacted; then your there
You claim to have only my best interests at heart
But all you do consider is the corporate pie chart
False information through social media you tell
Expounding all the benefits, of what it is you sell
You sent me tracking cookies every time I click
Then pepper me with ads, you think you’re slick
On Booksie some are not what they claim to be
They lie about their situation to a various degree
When I see unsuspecting people buying all the lies
I worry that they're gullible to believe in this disguise
Recently I noticed someone’s most outrageous claim
Posted here on Booksie, I believe they play a game
Readers are blindly buying in and being duped by lies
But this old man is skeptical and has discerning eyes
