  The first will be last in 2045 for then we will say “long dead and gone” are
  the svengali masters of blood contracts and casting couch management

  Yes, the runts, the hapless, the nerdy undersized
  have taken over Commerce.

  The allergic, shot taking sissies and hypersensitive mouth breathers
  now dictate Fashion and the fabrics we wear.

  Book worms who made lists of all the places they would travel
  and who loved poetry are the Moguls in Film and TV.

 “Long dead and gone” are the mesmerizing masters of secret societies
  and back-door transactions

 Those quiet, soft spoken faint of heart, the listeners of song birds
 and nature freaks now control the Music Industry.

  All athletes who prefer to jog and walk in the evenings 
  have redesigned Auto Industry manufacturing.

  So many slow to get coordinated, the ones afraid of cars and cycles
  surely own and dominate the Energy corridors.

 “Long dead and gone” are the hypnotizing masters of stealthy media
  and clandestine relations

  The anorexic, the obese, the children with no appreciation for gourmet
  govern our Farm, Fish and Game and decide what is nutritious

 

There is no legacy for the 7 deadly sins. The spoils have been abandoned
by their moneyed vainglorious carcasses. Today the Last are now First.

American poet, songwriter, and novelist; publishing poetry and short stories in print and online since 1998. Native of Houston, Texas, and former Marine (although there is no such thing as a former Marine). Family roots reach back to Mexico, Spain, Native America, France and Ireland. This promotes a worldview rich in family love, emotion, storytelling, and truth finding. Really enjoys well-written and well thought out verse, and backs away from over-used common and vulgar expressions. Words are music – just find the best “beat” and it will “sing” for you. “Knowledge may be power, while power certainly is love, but love is knowledge. Know who you are.” ~ Lawrence J. J. Leonard (1984)
