A Preacher Without Practice

A tree is useless if
its fruits are not fit to eat
The beautiful flowers in the garden
Are monotonous if they are without fragrance
The dark vapour laden clouds seem to be a mirage
If they pass without rain
Likewise a preacher without practice is worthless
What is the use of of being learned
If his knowledge is devoid of practice?
It will never benefit the people.

I love your truth through prose, well executed, a great picture of fruitlessness, and done in such grounded expression /10
So very true. A great poem by a great poet.

I am familiar with the author's work and know that his critique of these religious leaders could be much morederisive. They should be grateful that he exercised self control. I will vote it 10 out of 10.
