Wisdom

Wise people have never too much for to say
Or never use their words in a careless way
Their sort to say the least are of the few
And this is not saying anything that is new
Just a few wise people i have been privileged to meet
You will not meet one on every street
Their sort are rare yes quite rare indeed
And humanity of more of them is in need
Above the ordinary they surely do rise
They have a rare gift indeed those who are wise
Seeking advantage over their political opponents in their every verbal attack
Those we elect into parliament in wisdom do lack
The wise are good listeners they never speak loud
They are the quiet people in the noisy crowd.
