Sits by the ruler
Approving his ungodly ways
When a poor man comes
With grievance and claims
Finds Sycophant scholar singing master's praise.
Sycophant scholar does his job well
When he senses rebellion in sight
He tells the masses
To leave the ruling classes
They've been ordained by the Lord: most high.
Sycophant scholar he's after the dollar
When the master hears of the work he had done
He gets a raise, as the ruler is pleased
For the lies and deceit he had spun.
