Throw dirt on me, I'll grow to a wild flower, 
Been to hell and back, I can show voucher. 

Scriptures stored in memory, Pure oil kept in vials, 
Married to eternal spirit, When mortal broke her vows. 

Keep the faith always, Key to advance in life, 
Embrace peaceful options, To kill ample strife. 

Become poverty's lovelorn, Write the bill of divorce, 
Like a wilted rose, No love found or lost. 

When reasoning fails, Take up a byword, 
Grown-ups in diapers, Now that's really absurd. 

Stupid is what stupid does, A wise cliche, 
Knowledge is to life, As light is to day. 

Trick of the devil, Make-believe he don't exist, 
Great minds gone awry, Proclaiming ignorance is bliss. 

Fighting fire with fire, An old Biblical rule, 
Never yield to vain desire, Unless you're a mule. 

Drink if you thirst, From liquid wisdom to soothe, 
You are what you eat, So beware of poisonous food. 

Actions speak louder than words, Quit ample talking, 
Speak not rumors you've heard, Let it go walking. 

Godliness out-weighs wickedness, On a higher sheen, 
Stick to great kindness, While they're turning mean 

Never cease to give, Or rob the Almighty, 
Thieves will never rise, Above the state of poverty!
