Enlightenment - Poem by Poet Dragon

Law is made for lawyers
and crimes for criminals.
Politics for politicians.
Common sense for commoners.

Friendship is made for friends,
and love for lovers.
Hate for haters.
Religion for the religious.

School is made for administrators,
and lead for leaders.
Money for the rich.
Charity for the poor.

Knowing this,
be a little of each
or fail to find perspective.
