A Living Dog Is Better Than A Dead Lion - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

You made your way to the Mount of Olives for wisdom;
But, the truth will always set you free.

The age of mankind,
A student is not above the teacher.

Wash yourself once again and learn from the muse of life;
For, a living dog is better than a dead lion.

A prophet's reward!
A disciple is not above the teacher.

Yahweh knows what is going on! !
For, there is no work in the grave.

The grasshopper is a burden but,
A servant is not above his or her ruler.
