Fools

Rating: 5.0
Fools as we know, are always right
But things they do don't seem too bright
Their vision clear but cannot see
What others saw as idiocy

Somehow i think your photo is apropos**, a word i NEVER use. ** " adjective adjective: apropos very appropriate to a particular situation" line 3 i'd use 'vision is' or 'vision's' line 4 i'd use " see" , not " saw" But, because of your insight, your rhyming, your photo, and the 'humour', i send this to MyPoemList bri :) ha ha. i NOW see i sent this to MPL in 2017.

Can there be such a thing as perfect idiocy? While there is so much humour here, Loke, this verse is very much about truth, about life. Well done!

This overloading and single wheeling of motor bikes result in serious accidents, still it's a common sight.

Fools are those who know not And know not That they know not..............! ! I too have seen such scenes Usually done by crazy teens But here, to all age groups they belong I am sure they are not going to ride for long! ! You have stated a blunt truth for every one to think over with an apt picture!

A nice point about fools- - Fools are always right and so it is not right to argue with fools.

I suppose this was how the phrase They never learn came about; for by the time they do, it would be too late!
