Script Monkeys

By Samm Sutton

You just have to be confident

he told me

you have to boss them around

they are script monkeys

tell them you get seizures

seizures when you drink too much

seizures when you laugh

seizures when you don’t get what you want

and while you’re telling them what to do

be their friend

create a rapport

make them think

that you are the smartest man in the room

make them fear you

love you

convince them

that if they take you off

you will die

and that will really nail them

because they can see

from the blood in your eyes

that it’s truth.
