Jimmy Savile’s legacy,
or, Hey! Rockstar! Leave them kids alone.
“Dozens of big name stars from the 1960s and 70s have contacted Max Clifford “frightened to death” they will become implicated in the widening Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal, the PR guru has claimed.”
The Huffington Post, 26/10/2012
Speaking personally, Jimmy Savile, DJ and Knight of the Realm,
Never pulled down his track-suit and said ‘Give me head!’
Yet he changed the image I have of every pop star in the land
And managed to achieve this despite being dead.
I only have to see a photo of a pop star and I’m wondering,
‘Did you ever perform at the BBC?
Did you have underage girls throw themselves at you, and think,
“Who cares how old they are? Relax. It’s free.”’
A bit of dope in the dressing room and it seems they were yours
All for a signed photo or two.
They’d like to boast in the playground they’d met your band
And you’d like to find out what they could do.
‘We never asked for their birth certificates’, one pop star said –
One who was caught up in the media shit-storm –
So, with no way of knowing she was thirteen, he’s in the clear
And ‘if everyone’s at it, then it’s the norm.’
‘Better close the door, babe. We don’t want anyone seeing
You licking my lolly on ‘Top of the Pops’.
You’ll do all of us, won’t you? Then I’ll make sure you’re on telly –
Shh. Say nothing. Or someone’ll call the cops.’
The Beatles, the Stones, the Who and Gary Glitter
Now look like child-molesters and nonces.
Once the Pink Fairies, the Pink Floyds, and the Pretty Things looked pretty,
Instead of washed-up corporate ponces –
Arc-lit geriatric ghouls striding across Nuremburg stages,
Their voices amplified by vast banks of speakers,
They turn vulnerable kids into infantilized sex-toys,
“Come on come on, baby, come on come on.”
“I don’t even dare to ask you your age
It’s enough to know you’re here backstage
You’re jailbait, and I just can’t wait
Jailbait baby come on”.
“I don’t usually say this to girls your age
But when I saw you coming out of the school that day
That day I knew, I knew
I’ve got to have you, I’ve got to have you”.
“If I played guitar I’d be Jimmy Page
The girls I like are underage”
The Beastie Boys
“Well she was just 17, and you know what I mean!”
“I once loved a woman, a child I’m told…
But don’t think twice, it’s all right”
“Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire. I’m on fire”
“Girls of 15, sexually knowing”
“This girl is half his age…
Just like the old man in
That book by Nabokov”
“She’s only fifteen
That’s the reason that I can’t sleep
You say illegal
I say legal’s never been my scene”.
“I can see that you’re fifteen years old
No I don’t want your I.D.
You look so rest-less and you’re so far from home
But it’s no hanging matter
It’s no capital crime.”
“Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Bet your mama don’t know you scream like that
I bet your mother don’t know you can spit like that.
The Rolling Stones
I’m hanging around that same old scene
My girlfriend Betsy she’s just fourteen
There’s nothing better for me to do
I’m living on dog food
“Steal away from mummy, oh, there’s my little girl;
On the pillow of my tummy, give my hair a curl;
Run your fingers under and over make us a little blow;
And don’t forget about tomorrow, in the same place after school;
Baby, make me calm your fears; let me hold your 13 years.”
“My Francine just turned thirteen,
She’s my angelic teenage queen.
And I love her, she’s all that I want.
And I need her, she’s all that I need.”
“Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon you’ll need a man.”
“Good morning little schoolgirl”
“We could go on the hovercraft across the water.
They’ll think I’m your dad and you’re my daughter.”
“Don’t say a word my virgin child
Just let your inhibitions run wild.”
“Do you wanna touch me there? Yeah!”
“Ooooh, I need a dirty woman. Ooooh, I need a dirty girl.”
And all the paedophile house bands arouse erotomania
As Zappa boasts a groupie who still has her baby teeth.
A Comfortably Numb “Deep Throat” Spray:
Is a Pink Floyd inspired Oral Sex Enhancer:
If Spearmint’s not your flavor of choice you can get it in Apple;
And in Chocolate; and in Peppermint and in Cinnamon.
The spray suppresses the gag reflex, which is Important
When babies and toddlers are being targeted in songs.
A gag reflex is a survival instinct which needs to survive,
Yet anything goes when “God wants sex’ – Pink Floyd
Led Zeppelin – sings “The Ocean” (“she is only 3 years old /
It’s a real fine way to start”) And the Boomtown Rats praise,
“Mary of the Fourth Form” for whom “Teacher is a natural man
as his hand moves out to touch her.”
“Touch Me I’m Six” sings Mudhoney.
But these grisly hedonists with their fraudulent face-lifts,
Creepy litanies of lust and erectile egos,
Are now tarred by Savile’s brush, joining the priests in black dresses
Panicking and scuttling as people spit out, ‘Paedos.’
Multi-millionaire mega-celebs may skulk in tax havens
But the karma police are catching them, this way or that –
Now photographed with close-up lenses to look like monsters;
They’re rounded up and arrested in their West End flats.
Pop stars and priests become synonymous with paedophilia,
The innocent being caught up with the guilty,
Through childhood’s contamination with the cult of celebrity godheads
Each one proving that the pillars of society aren’t so pretty.
Jimmy Savile believed that raping young girls kept him young,
And he destroyed them because ‘boys will be boys’.
Gary Glitter and the rest asked little girls to be in their gang
Till they cast them aside like broken toys.
