When Slaves Consulted A Sage

When slaves sought services of a sage
He implored them to upgrade their mental balance
To gain an increase in their wage.

It came as a surprise to read a message
From slaves that undermined solace
When slaves sought services of a sage.

Slaves took advantage of the passage
Of time and retrieved the royal mace
To gain an increase in their wage.

With the onset of the internet age
Knowledge dissemination seeped into every space
When slaves sought services of a sage.


Slaves made up their minds to turn the page
Start afresh and tie every loose lace
To gain an increase in their wage.


When nonsense spat its rage
Slaves hid and slid in the royal palace
When slaves sought services of a sage
To gain an increase in their wage.
