Business (A Poem)

it’s just business
that’s all
if we don’t get back
it’s not that you’re not good
we’ve just got so much going on
and no time to call

it’s just business
don’t take it personally
there were 47 submissions
just this week
and we have the best writers
on our staff you see

it’s just business
and right now it’s good
money’s coming in
the bills are paid
we don’t need any new guys
in the neighborhood

it’s just business
it’s funny what people will buy
just package up mediocrity
art is overrated
just give us a beat
and some rhymes on the fly

we wish you the best
honest we do
but truth be told
you’re the competition
it’s just business
come on buddy
get a clue

it’s just business
