So What Does It Take To Be A Corporate GREAT ... ???

Do You Need To Be A Snake Who's ALWAYS On The Make ... ?

Or Be Like TRUMP And Have Apprentices Run ...
Through Hoops And ... JUMP ... !?!

What Does It Take To Be Someone ...
Who Makes Their Way By Pulling Stunts ... ?!?

STUNTS That STUNT Others' Movements ... !?!
Isn't That What's Done By ... PRESIDENTS ... !?!

And What Does It Take To Denigrate ...
Anothers' Name To Be Well Paid ... ?!?

... "It's just a game, with cake to take,
... that has high stakes, and a price to pay !"

I Guess That's What Most of Them Would Say ...
Snakes' Who Play ... KISS ARSE ALL DAY ... !!!

Kiss ARSE HERE ... Kiss ARSE THERE ...

What Does It Take To Be So FAKE ... ?
A Piece of Arse That's Got GREAT SHAPE ... !?!
Or An AwkWaRd staNCE To Kiss THAT PLACE ... !!!

That Place Where Suck-Ups Choose To Go ... !!!
From Thugs To Sluts Who FREE Up Holes ...

... " Hold on there whoa, and slow your roll ! "

.... I DON'T Mean THOSE ... !!!

I Mean The Ones Inside Their Nose ... !!!!!
Come On Now Folks DON'T Lower The Tone ...
Like Those Whose Souls Are Sold For NOTES ... !!!

FIFTIES TWENTIES ... ANYTHING Goes ... !!!!!

So What Does It Take To Stoop SO LOW ... !?!

DESPERATION ... WAIT I DON'T Think So ... !?!

Well How About FAME ... Entertainers KNOW .... !?!
The Things Some Do Just To Get Through ... !?!
Provides CLEAR PROOF That What It Takes Is NOT The TRUTH ... !!!!!

What It Takes Is LIES Most of The Time ...
To Spread Girls Thighs Or Be In The LIMELIGHT ... !!!

YES Stars DO SHINE But ... IN THE SKY ... !!!!!!!!!!!

DON'T Be Misled ... FAME Gets To Heads ...
Because Most Stars Have Kissed Some Arse ...
To Get The Chance To Be Where They Are ... !!!!!

Shouldn't It Take More To Earn Applause ....
Than A Pretty Little Face And TIGHT Body Shape ... !?!

It Would Seem NOT But That's No Shock ....
Prostitution Is A Trade Nicknamed The Game ... !!!

A Game Being Played By MANY Today ... !!!!!
NO SHAME In The Game That's Played Nowadays ...
NO NEED To Name Names They've Got ENOUGH Fame ... !!!!!!

So What Does It Take NOT TO Follow Their Ways ... !?!

Number One Is A Brain And The Game To Play STRAIGHT ... !!!

Number Two Is A Crew Who BELIEVE In You ...

Number Three ... Is NOT EASY ... !!!
DON'T Deceive Or Fall Victim To GREED ... !!!!!

Number Four Of Course Is DON'T Act Like A WHORE...
Cos' This Fa' Sure Means Your Ass Has Been BOUGHT ... !!!!!

Number Five's No Surprise DON'T Live By LIES ...
Stand In The Light So You'll KNOW What's Right ... !!!!!

If You Follow These Rules You'll Cruise Past Fools ... !!!!!
Stay TRUE To Your Roots NEVER Do What They Do ... !!!

THEY Who Choose To Make Sly Moves ... !!!!
To Bypass Crews Whose Moves AREN'T Crude ...

Happiness Is NOT DEFINED By LOOT ... !!!!!
Or Devious Plots That Corporates Use ...

That's Just MY View But What About YOU ... ?
What Does It Take To Make You BREAK ... ?!?
AWAY From Things ... Financiers Bring ... ?!?

Words Like THIS That Make You THINK ...
About MORE Than Bling And FANCY Things ...
Like ... How We Live And The Things Life Brings ...

Life Is LIFE Suffering And Strife And Some Good Times ... !!!!!

But Who Really Know What Makes Us grOW ... ?!?
And Make The Choices That We Make ... !?!

I Guess That's Why I Write These Rhymes ...
Because My Mind's Always Inclined To Rationalise And Try To Find .....

A RIGHTEOUS Place Within My Brain ...
When Dealing With These Walking SNAKES ... !!!!!
Wouldn't Life Be GREAT WITHOUT These Fakes ... ?!?

I Hope One Day They'll Change Their Traits ...
For The Betterment of The ... " Human Race " ... !!!!!

But For Now It Seems The Question Remains .......................

And The Question Is THIS ...........

..... " What Does It Take !?! " .....
