Few Do Grow Wise

All men do grow older but few do grow wise
This is something of late i have come to realize
And do believe me i am one who should know
For i have grown older but wiser did not grow
Yes old people are many but the wise they are few
And what applies to aging males applies to aging females too
At the way we treat the Planet we live on would you not agree
Is proof enough of our lack of wisdom is how it seems to be
That few people as they age grow wiser seems hard to deny
And what applies to most men to most women too does apply
Among the financially successful many wise people you will not find
Wisdom seems to be more prevalent among the not so well to do kind
The wise people of the World are an endangered breed
And of more of their kind humanity is in need.
