A wiser man

Written by: DAVID WALLACE

Watch and listen, learn, then talk
Wriggle crawl, then start to walk
ingesting knowledge, form ideas
discover pathways through the maze
fully formed then take your stand
unique among your fellow man
using wisdom air your views
be prepared for bad reviews
attend and hear what others say
Adjust, adapt and make your play
Many minds applied before
Have formulated truths Galore
Though you think your concept cool
Think it through, the golden rule
‘Better to say nothing and have people think you a fool 
Than to open your mouth and prove them right’
