Svengali Rap

 

 musical note

 

 

Looking back in time,

a kind of melancholy feels just fine.

Not only the environment is in shreds

but also what's lodged in the heads.

 

A rundown

reveals the fact

that grass wasn't black,

oranges not brown,

lemons not purple,

and insights no hurdle.

 

There is confirmation

that organisations

need restorations

from the self-inflicted farce

which mars

their reputation,

but you will get the scars.

 

Gobbling up the stupid drivel

from some stamping official,

in spite of a clear sight

on the plight,

caressing the excess of the mess,

indignant whenever there lurks

a spanner in the works.

 

------------------------------  Refrain  -----------------------------

 

Charlatans are selling dreck.

There is a modern standard

with a huge fun yard.

The more you get, the less you know,

in a theater without a show.

Charlatans are selling dreck.

Do not cut them any slack.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

One is defrauded

by the pomp awarded.

A dark hose

full of smoke and mirrors forebodes

that the future gets marauded.

 

No skills are really necessary,

merely the punctual money ferry,

without suspense

waiting for the upgrades to commence.

Brainwashed by the score

until outrage is no more,

and self-deceit goes happily ashore.

 

Once the currency has eroded,

you face inflation,

and the costs are loaded

on the generation from the generation

which could know everything but doesn't know a bit,

devours every shit.

The franchise is established;

who didn't team up has vanished.

As a soft act to follow,

the status symbol is both round and hollow.

 

------------------------------  Refrain  -----------------------------

 

Charlatans are selling dreck.

There is a modern standard

with a huge fun yard.

The more you get, the less you know,

in a theater without a show.

Charlatans are selling dreck.

Do not cut them any slack.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The con-men's turpitude is way too sick,

while the consumers' attitude is much too lethargic

to defend themselves and educate

and remove the chaff from their estate.

 

Unchained from the constraint

of expertise,

hot for promotion frequencies,

adore the charade

of the tinsel parade.

Loyal to lobbyists of the guilds

which set up shop in vanity fields.

 

When they deny essentials

and corral potentials,

it makes

tigers to pussycats and eagles to sparrows,

mountains to hills and oceans to rills

and gardens to landfills.

 

Satire from the past is the reality of today,

and the indifferent pack has embraced without delay

that the seed of arbitrariness will tomorrow

bring in a harvest of horror and sorrow.

 

------------------------------  Refrain  -----------------------------

 

Charlatans are selling dreck.

There is a modern standard

with a huge fun yard.

The more you get, the less you know,

in a theater without a show.

Charlatans are selling dreck.

Do not cut them any slack.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The packagings are still the same,

but content had to wane,

and the obedient controllers

ennoble the squalors.

 

The stuff in the profile

is indeed no matter of style.

What's labeled kangaroo

contains a Labrador,

and when it makes moo

no one cares anymore.

 

If the conductors are failing purposely,

the orchestra should ask decidedly:

What now ?

What to do ?

It does always pay

to call it a day

and walk away.

 

Embark on a journey,

the path is the goal,

but don't forget the goal,

towards bright pastures,

away from bogus masters

and their phoney phrases,

finding new magic in fresh oases.

 

------------------------------  Refrain  -----------------------------

 

Charlatans are selling dreck.

There is a modern standard

with a huge fun yard.

The more you get, the less you know,

in a theater without a show.

Charlatans are selling dreck.

Do not cut them any slack.
