Sonnet #20: Listen to your heart

In a world where everybody's selling something,
how can we ever really know what's true?
Should we take them at their word, that theirs is better;
or follow our instincts and say adieu

when we're asked to sign, right here, on this dotted line,
"because we're less expensive, and offer more?"
When we google their reputation, it seems fine,
so what drives this urge to show these guys the door?

 Experience has taught us not to trust
the claims of those who feed upon our passions
and take our cash with promises that go bust --
we're left betrayed while to the bank they're dashing.

In such decisions, listen to your heart:
what rises from within may well be smart...
