It Isn't Fair

The sweet smell of success
      has a subliminal lean
                        SNAP! CRACKLE! POPCORN!
In the marketing business
      only dollars are seen.

Demographically designed odorants
      waft about retail concourses
                        PFFFFT! Brand new Cadillac!
Activating our buying muscles
      and emptying our purses.

IT ISN'T FAIR, the conscious mind says,
      to bypass my total control,
                         SNIFFFF! SHALIMAR!
Ain't gonna let no unconscious jazz
      mess with my bankroll.

Laws are passed prohibiting smells
      from use in increasing sales
                        MMMmmm! HOMEBAKED BREAD!
The conscious mind can rest content:
      for why it buys it has no hint.

What kind of perfume did
Bridgette Bardot wear
when she wore
nothing at all?
An industrial nation that doesn't trust
      its unconscious mind
                        AHHHH! ROSES!!!
Will find itself not boom, but bust,
      A decade and a half behind.
