Poems are for suckers, least that's what i'm told
But poems are a format of writers of old
Respect your elders, thats what mom said
Respect your elders and learn from the dead
Lessons from past are always the best
But the past language can be hard to digest
Slowly but surely the lessons are learned
Both good and bad are soon learned in turn
So listen to poems, the words of the old
Then safely and steadily, your life will unfold.
