22 May 2016 – The Birth of Wisdom

Each generation
thinks that it’s the first to grace
this world with wisdom!

Forefathers fettered,
listen in their lonely graves
to hear our insights!

The rubber hammer
waits to smack the donkey’s skull
until he’s forty!

Up ’til then? The world’s
a bin of rusted lug nuts –
and where’s you’re fingers?

(Side-note to rulers:
notice how the streets reflect
what’s nuts within you?)

The birth of wisdom?
Seeing all the world’s insane –
and you’re included!

That was the moment
this Olde Foole – with all he knew –
saw he was clueless.
