Even the Wise and Peaceable are Fools

My brother is young and says, 
“I’m wise for my years…”

My sister is younger and says, 
“I’m peaceful for my age…”

I am the eldest and say nothing…

They quarrel…
And quarrel…
And quarrel…

Then I said
	“Peace never lasts
		And the wise can be fools
You both made each other
	A tool to each other’s fool…”

    Clara, wonderfully shaped. It has all the feelings of a proverb and that is what makes it work. The simple statement and the closure allow the reader to think and fill in their own meaning. Whilst you may have intended a particular meaning I think that you avoid preaching. A lovely poem that is worth revisiting.
