Shylock

Shylock

4 mins 6 4 mins 6

Shylock comes beating his drums

With his money bag in his deceitful deft pocket

Mesmerizing the penny-wise, with the sleight of his hand

Grabbing their land with the blink of his eyes

Taking their pound of flesh, with his shrewd knife

Draining their freedom of thought with his single face penny


The penny wise just smacking their tongue, under the thumb of Shylock

Shylock wants to entrap them all in his bag of deceit

But he can’t buy all with his deceitful deft single face penny

Shylock fills his deceitful deft bag of pennies from the faith

of the hearty and the brave the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all

He scorns the might of the hearty, and the merry, the free and the salute,with a smile on his face

With the sleight of hand, Shylock, steals the faith of love, of the hearty and the merry, the free and the salute

And want to turn it into a barrel of the gun, to rule one and all, under the weight of his thumb

Shylock talks sweet and sour with the hearty and the brave and the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all


When faced with a tear in his deceitful deft pocket

Only mighty can be hearty, only sweet can be merry, only good can be brave, only alive can be free, only proud can be salute 

But Shylock can only be bitey

Shylock want to bite the pound of flesh, with his deceitful deft penny, that he throws at the penny wise  

He wants to rule the world from his deft penny and his pound of flesh bite

But he can’t get his pound of flesh from the hearty and the brave and the merry and the free and the salute

Shylock is waiting in the shadows to turn the events on the hearty and the brave and the merry and the salute and the one and all

The week will fall, the strong will stand

How long and how far will old Shylock run all over Earth, before he falls under his own weight

His deft pocket is full because of the faith of love of the hearty and the brave,

the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all

what will shylock do if all the hearty and the brave leave him one by one for his scorn for them

Shylock, wants to look pretty and talk sweet to one and all If his pennies start to leak from his deft pocket,


He lurks in the shadows of deceit only

With his mind full only for the pound of flesh of one and all

Shylock pot of deceit is not bottom less

He wobbles on his feet, but shows his red eyes to the hearty and the brave

He breathes fire on land and water, making smoke and fog, trying to beat one and all

Not knowing in his blind desire for the pound of flesh

That, the hearty and the brave, the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all

Fill his pot full of pennies

Which he thinks are his own to keep and to take the pound of flesh of others


Time does not stay still, his pot of deceit will also drain away

Then what will shylock do with his fist full of pennies that will turn to sand

the hearty and the brave, the merry, and the free, the salute and the one and all, will leave Shylock

in his land,of which much is not his, to rue his hand of sleight and deceit

Shylock dreams to raise the a new Sun in the sky so that his morning never ends

But his false Sun will never rise from the depths of the sands, where it sits

The sun in the sky shines for all, and all will rise with the rising Sun in the sky

To share the light and the brightness of the good

of the hearty and the brave, the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all  


Shylock will be Shylock, because that is all he wants to be only, in this time

But only the mighty can be hearty and good can be brave

And sow the fruit of the heavens for one and all to cherish

Only the good can be brave

For they want no more than the wave of smiles of all

The world is one and Shylock is one

Only living in his desire for the pound of flesh of all


The goodness of the hearty and the brave, the merry and the free, the salute and the one and all

Will bring the bright shine of the mighty Sun in the sky

And free the land from the ills of the hand of deceit

To breathe free, to live free, to think free, to feel free

The hearty and the brave and the merry and the free and the salute and the one and all

Are one for all and all for one

The mighty Sun in the sky, full of warmth and brightness for one and all

And all be blessed with happiness for all

Shylock will pass away in time, leaving behind only his deceit to think and to forget

Love of Buddha will shine bright in the rising Sun in the sky

Shylock will pass away in time …..
