Pretenders

Life is not as hard as I make it. I know people who have proven this to me. People who recognize a good con is worth a million times as much as a good education. I've seen it work. I've seen how easily the sheep are manipulated. People will believe what they want to believe. You just figure out what the mark wants to believe. Then, you just plug in yourself to that equation. Rather simple.

I may or may not know people who have resorted to some rather questionable ethics. Their monetary success would impress most. A good scam. That's really what everyone wants. A good scam is one that everyone accepts as ethical. Shiny eveything. Appearances are far more important than reality. A good false cover will eventually result in real success. "Fake it till you make it." It's true: they have it all.

But, as jealous as my fleshly mind may be, I can't bring myself to envy. I don't want to be drawn into that type of lifestyle. Because at night, when the demons come, and they inevitably will, I don't intend to be any more outnumbered than I already am.
