Wisdom -/- Ignorance

2:11
Wisdom

Traverse life’s slippery slopes
With sapient staffs

Inner wisdom’s inviolable fortress
Wards destructive forces

As canals transport goods
Wisdom channels mentality

Wherever wisdom leads us
Excellence says follow

***

Correcting misdirection & indiscretion
Gumption’s entempl’d preserve

Never fear making mistakes
Only repeating them

Remembrances of past events
Guidebooks for futurity


2:12
Ignorance

Proclaim professorship Human Being
Bombastic buffoonary, Beast

Louts feigning proper knowledge
Doubted when accurate

Bestowing brilliance upon yourself
Announces personal ignorance

Uneducated insight occasionally excellent
But seldom respected

***

Spoons cannot taste porridge
Nor cretins, wisdom

Dirty containers rancify food
Idiotic acquaintances, life

One contemplative day outweighs
Multiple ignorant lifetimes
