Master Salesman

“You say you sold the ugly coat?”
The boss asked the new sales clerk.
“Well now that is most certainly
A commendable piece of work.”

The ugly double-breasted coat
Was purple and yellow and blue.
“And you found someone to buy it?
That’s almost too good to be true.”

“This calls for a celebration,
Let’s buy a cake and hire a band!”
It was then the owner noticed,
The new clerk had a bleeding hand.

The clerk said, “I tried to rush him,
Afraid that he would change his mind.
But he was a little clumsy
He was not the hurrying kind.”

“I was helping him out the door
When he took his cane and hit me.
And I got my mangled fingers,
When his seeing-eye dog bit me!”
