The Wise V's The Fool
It is the wise man who knows the fool
by Alice Anne Gordon
In modern times as an ancient rule.
Wise they are that learn
From their mistakes; adjourn
To always question…
There is no need for ‘best evidence rule’
To prove the thirst for knowledge; fuel
Ambition, be discreet; yearn
To always question
The fool trips onwards; passage cruel.
The wise man thinks; realities dual,
Passed the point – no return.
Reason, senses; which to spurn?
The ancients taught in worldly school
To always question.
