.........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 John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
