Turn a Profit, I Doubt You Could

We could catch and sell crabs at a seaside concession stand,
but that just doesn’t seem like a sustainable business model.

I think it was my fault for pushing you too hard.
We can’t all be entrepreneurs, and I should have recognized that.

Sales just isn’t the profession for some people,
no matter what you’re trying to get across to the customer.

Even if you had a self-wetting sponge with an everlasting,
constantly-regenerating supply of soap and scrubbing pad
made specifically to hold up for fifty years of wear (and could sell
this product at one dollar per unit and still turn a profit),
I doubt you could make someone want it.

It’s not your fault, I just pushed you too far.
Let’s go back to the drawing board, Gene.
