A Bird most Fowl

What strange epithets
What strange expletives
We reserve for some sellers

huckster
pusher
hustler
shady dealer
confidence trickster

Some just don't sound well
fishmonger

What about....whore?  slut?

"You seller of Spring!"
"You helpful associate!"

Are these bad because they sound badly?
Or because they do bad things?
Or because we want to feel justified
When we do bad things to them
Like degrade the price of their product
Or feel badly about ourselves?
