Gullible Times Classified

Picture Link to Dark Stories

Arthur Furguson so it’s said
his sales were monumental
Nelsons Column Trafalgar square
the lions were incidental

Then Buckingham Palace Eifel Tower
Plus the clock and old Big Ben
when off he sailed to the USA,
to play his tricks all over again.

With apparent flair the White House
he leased to a cattle rancher
a $100k deposit placed
in the hands of this genteel chancer

He almost sold off Liberty
for a one-off hundred grand
then five years penal servitude
but the cash he kept in hand

This tale of sly skulduggery
of urban myth and fable
so full of hoax and parable
where truth is inconceivable

  1. Urban myth continues to be popular for those who most need to believe.
