.........Old-School


Time bides at the old-school
Old-school boys are top of their class
Living at the house of better
Superiority complexes are born and bred

Money talks posh at the old-school
Greed mocks life
And art’s a masquerade
Movers and shakers are statuesque fakers
Stiff
From their upper lip down

The old-school stand in line
Old-school rules are set in stone
An immovable objection
Pompously oblivious to the outside world
They spend their days looking to make examples

Old-school, living history
Tradition
Everything was
Back in the day

Old-school boys never leave
Branded
Their world is held together by old school ties

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
