Rosalie Lopez: Ode to Vanguard — Part I

He was your Vanguard - lest we forget.

By Rosalie Lopez

There once was a Laddie named Keith
Who would grow up to make a fine
With his blue, criss-crossed eyes
Few could see through his lies —
How it thrilled him to alter

Keith Raniere he also loved
And the little girls he would deflower
Playing video games
Keith would bring them to shame
Without even bothering
To Shower

The girls believed Keith was
“The One”
For he didn’t just want to have fun
He meant “business” with them
(And with all of their friends)
You see Keith was no quick
Hit and Run

They all thought that Keith was so
What great things unto them he’d
His pontifications,
His ejaculations
Poured forth from a “pure, noble”

Keith, he didn’t just want to get laid
No, he wanted his bed to be
So he harnessed their passions
And used those to fashion
A “business” where few would be

It was all such a labor of love
What world problems Keith’s mind
Could resolve
With his Genius IQ
No one doubted he knew
More than God in the skies up

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
