Knowledge -/- Study

2:3
Knowledge

Comprehension without solidifying wisdom
Water macerating sand

However lowly one born
Intellectualism raises us

Avenues of intellectual enquiry
Direct human progress

Unreliable sources of gnosis;
Faith, superstition, opinion

***

Genius unleashes virtuoso brilliancies
Improving communities beautifully

Candles of knowledgeable beings
Light millions more

Yesterday’s brainiac today’s simpleton,
Society steadily complexifying


2:4
Study

Humanity inherits, improves, imparts
Batons of erudition

Ignoring schoolery’s jewel’d nuggets
Youth’s stupidest lunacy

Imperishable education illuminates intelligence
Demolishing delusional ideas

Selective, extensible, industrious study
Sharpens critical ability

***

As raindrops raise rivers
Aphorisms enrich civilisation

Beware substituting personal witness
With bookish lore

Wannabes studying with butchers
Cobblers won’t become
