How Has FS Benefited You contest entry

The Benefits of FanStory

     We'll start off with the usual
     and hope I sound sincere,
     with what I've learned and friends I've made,
     like every entry here.

     But things I'll thank Fanstory for
     may differ in your eyes.
     For I've been taught to twist my words
     and scribble pretty lies.

     I've learned that all I want from here
     is manna for my greed,
     to build my pile of member gold
     is what I crave and need.

     I've mastered skills of rhyme and verse,
     manipulating truths.
     I bait the traps that snare your heart,
     reflected in the booths.

     It's taught me just how easily
     mentality is swayed.
     I'll write of love or age or pets,
     assuring I'll get paid.

     It's also taught me not to care
     about the crap I post.
     Sometimes I'll win a prompt that's full
     with two reviews at most.

     So long ago I really tried
     and shared my heart and soul.
     But now I wallow in deceit
     while counting cash I stole.

     I thank Fanstory for it all,
     it's taught me how to grow,
     and reap the many benefits
     that bullshit can bestow.
