If Shakespeare, Freud or Einstein came today
most common hipster geeks could give a hoot.
If something isn't bling, it gets no play,
or doesn't drop your jaw, it gets the boot.
The geniuses of yesterday still rule,
if no one's holding jewels surpassing theirs.
New artists must create a brand new school,
or get in line, so proud to be the heirs
of they whose smarts are never out of style.
'Wish-they-weres' and wannabes, evince no awe
for stunning 'leaps of reach', which should beguile.
Instead, they yawn, and shrug it off as 'blah'.
The real McCoy is timeless, and demands
devotion and esteem, for which it stands.
