Weapons of Persuasion

Singles at the bar,
Politicians on the stump,
Salesmen on the lot—
Practicing the art of persuasion.

We think we make our own decisions;
We think we are in control,
But we are all open to persuasion.

The art of persuasion
Turned into a science,
Unlocking the mysteries of persuasion.

What works,
What doesn’t work,
Why we end up getting duped.

Learn these secrets.
Reach the ultimate goal.
Get others to do your bidding.

“Weapons?”  I’d rather say “tools of persuasion. Or “techniques of persuasion.”
