A bit of fun with possibly true undertones :)

Musty Suits

Old men walk the earth today
Like the dinosaurs of yesterday
Giving orders, controlling things
Throwing weight, pulling strings
I am told age makes you clever
Geniuses wander Ďround forever

But I know some geriatrics
With unsavory party tricks
They have nothing to lose
Odd socks filling their shoes

Power is held by those soon to die
But nobody can explain just why
Money moves around the globe
To musty suits in an old wardrobe

This may seem very harsh
Maybe even a little unfair
But perhaps Iíll be one too
So treat me with all due care

Thoroughly enjoyed this Dave. You ask all the right questions in your usual candid style with glorious use of language! Well done, my friend!

Youíre a very clever poet, but youíre not old. I especially like the third stanza. It asks and answers the ďWhyĒ regarding power.
I really enjoyed this. Itís fun and itís thought provoking.

I love the rhyme of "geriatrics" and "party tricks"!
