Wise People Are Born Wise

There may be some truth in the saying i have come to realize
That wisdom does not always come with age wise people are born wise
I know many silly old blokes and many silly old dears
And i know some in their twenties who are wise beyond their years
That few of the wise are leaders in the Human World of today
Leaves us mentally the poorer and this seems a sad thing to say
We make small gods of the wealthy narcissistic and celebrities admire
And of singing the praises of sporting heroes many never seem to tire
But there are not many wise people cheering in the football crowd
The wise are good at listening and they never do talk loud
Those who have the gift of wisdom are quite privileged indeed
The World better for them in it of more of their sort we do need
I know many silly old blokes and many silly old dears
And i know some in their twenties who are wise beyond their years.
