Perennial Nobility

The music video below is a pop art - pop philosophical work of mine, based on a poem I wrote in 2005, that comments. metaphorically, on the economic dynamics of our era, and especially: Whatever happened to "noble capitalism"?


My original poem (2005): Seasons of Years (Perennial Nobility)

Winners they were, of endless quarters
Believers they were, to the cause
Seekers they were, of the absolute advantage
Players they were, of the perennial game

Alone she was, waiting for her Prince
On the phone she was, searching for clues
Prone she was, to conspiracy theories
Away from her throne she was, a princess without her prince

Speechless he was, observing the outcome
Pennyless he felt, after the game
Effortless he thought, was his way home
Pointless he knew, was to try to regain his throne

Years passed
Springs, Summers, Autumns and Winters

The princess was waiting
The prince was hurting
The people were confused
The enemies were amused

Fairy tales can come true
But only in fairy tales?
