Strongly Suggested And Advisable


If anyone wants to be taken seriously,
Investing first in gaining crediblity...
Is strongly suggested and advisable.
Since adopting a fast track way,
To obtain acceptance in some influential circles...
Just to be seen hob nobbing amongst,
The movers and shakers who themselves charade...
Does not guarantee a long lasting approval.

And besides...
Dressing the part no longer impresses those awake.
Spotting instantly those who seek,
To glamorize every entrance they make.
And...
They may or may 'not' be fake.
But today?
The odds are not in their favor.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
