In arrogance I am aroused by my feelings
I strongly submit my way is best
I demonstrate this devotion
And so I manifest
I stand on the right side of history
I stand correct in my assessment
But what the impetuous youth declares
Won’t clear the stage for the average adolescent
Being young won’t give you wisdom
Without time, without test
The highest matters
Should not be decided and put to rest
How can you tell
That the world is on fire?
If you can’t tell the rot-gut bottle
From the top shelf one that’s higher?
Why do we listen
To all the political hacks?
Have we never learned
From their past idiotic syntax?
Our relationships often fail
Quite often we do not learn
Find yet another similar situation
Find yet another one to burn
Hidden from a conscious effort
The duly noted quest
Distinguishable only by clear thought
In the muddied waters of the professed
We the human beings
Romp and trample about
To never learn from our failures
How can we possibly tout?
The braggart’s and peacock’s
Fumble themselves away
Never truly noticed
Despite the latest soiree
The talented one’s will see
This effervescent sham
What must they do?
If indeed they can?
