Obsolete Brilliance

So concerned with the skill
But anyone's skilled with language
Everyone knows the power of will
Though words rarely show knowledge

So i say screw the pettiness of being clever
I say screw those who value wit over truth
Why do we appreciate those under cover
Yet we let them hide because that's just youth

We could read a page of "smart" quotes 
I could litter a textbook with highlighter
Anyone could refer to important anecdotes
Everyone congratulates the "brilliant" writer

All the time we see it happen everywhere 
All of us are blinded by words every time
Take the aged's advice without thought or care
Though soon enough you'll find it a crime

For they lived long before our era of man
They spoke in a period when word was a privilege
What was written was read by no educated scan
The world is changing and so is knowledge
