That’s What People Say - Poem by ArmourQuill Hunter
I’m sure I’ve heard “Too hot to handle, ” for what others say.
“You really make me think, ” one said, but then he turned away.
'She’s clever but eccentric-, as if she's come from Mars.'
Some might’ve heard me mention my royals, shining as a star.
No wonder Wisdom cries to the simple; oft-landing on deaf ears.
People fear many things and “the bitter truth” is often feared.
Also, once there was a wise man- 'who could have saved a town.'
Townsfolk didn’t trust his advice for his style wasn’t renowned.
He’d no-title but travelled the world, was taught as Moses of old.
Even leaders (as Moses) are complained against, and some are bold.
So, can any tell me why 'the words of the wise' are seldom heard?
Why fools 'resound here-say' for show, as if not hearing a word?
