We want more likes
We want more money
Wisdom is not valued
It is a paper thrown away
It is a bird ignored when it's flying past.
It is not a commodity we praise
Or look for,
We discard it when its inconvenient
Or irrelevant to our social network.
It is better to be dumb than wise
This is message from society,
Those that proclaiming to be wise
Let their ego rule
So they become unbearable.
What hope do we have in this day in age
For wisdom has changed face
To be wise a label
Not a spiritual aspiration.
