Computer Age Awash With Knowledge Not Wisdom - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
in an electronic age
at fingertip strokes
we are awash in facts...
a flood glut abundance
flows a plenitude of facts
plentiful facts historical pacts
but we learn no lessons...
but we learn nothing from war monger rats
creating next wars out of industrial greed hats
wisdom is what cannon fodder masses must learn
it is our sacrifice victim bodies which war raging burn...
learn wisdom but knowledge is not wisdom
wisdom is applied ability applying knowledge
with necessary facts preferably all facts needed
wake up realize peace harmony not war is what we need...
solve political problems justifying war profit greed
disempower war monger rats power greed fat cats
don't swallow any good wars old lie rhetoric lines
don't swallow war on terror billions budget arms sales
