You may be sharp, intelligent and keen,
But that’s no guarantee that you are wise,
For many nasty bastards who are mean
Are brighter than we want to recognize.
Oh, yes, it takes intelligence to act
With prudence and responsibility,
But without heart and soul, the odds are stacked
That how you act will end in misery.
Wisest are those who are both good and shrewd
With providence their foremost attitude.
