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.
