I admit to begging, and
readily acknowledge the use of spirits

I tell long involved stories about
my tragic childhood,
have gone shopping for expensive jewelry
and spent not a dime

I draw portraits
I paint word pictures and
there was one time I offered to fly around the world
but didn't

It's all fiction, but this:
Guys like us
we pay
but not with cash.
