Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

Eminence Front

The sun shines
People forget
The spray flies as the speedboat glides
People forget
Forget they're hiding
The girls smile
People forget
The snow packs as the skier tracks
People forget
Forget they're hiding.

Behind an eminence front
Eminence front - It's a put-on

The drinks flow
People forget
That big wheel spins, the hair thins
People forget
Forget they're hiding
The news slows
People forget
The shares crash, hopes are dashed
People forget
Forget they're hiding.

Behind an eminence front
An eminence front - it's a put-on
it's a put-on - it's a put-on

The Who

I doubt those who lost everything will ever forgive or forget the man who hid behind an eminence front. They just want their legacy back.

    Great job! I was just reading about him and other associates of his in the latest Vanity Fair edition. Incredible story, isn't it?

    Yes, I read it too... unbelievable.

    It's the crime of the century, we haven't heard the last of this one. There must me about 100 screen plays in progress. Nice one Larry.

    The contrast could not be greater. My love for that song and hate for that man. I will always associate Madoff to that song now. Love all of these Larry.

    Larry, I think the lyrics illuminate aspects of this recent exposure of "an emporer with no clothes" very well. Who knew.... Pat
