We’re teachers seeding pearls, you know...
Doing some insemination,
Planting bits of inspiration
And watching pearls of wisdom grow
But some pearls are poisoned
Falling short of desired perfection
It’s a hall of mirrors
Showing wisdom’s twisted reflection
Poison Pearls of wisdom,
No matter how they come,
They are the seeds, you see,
That sprout into perfidy
The Preachers’ congregation’s confused
When trust, wife and children are abused...
Sophistry, twisting logic to one’s own use,
Fallacious reasoning turns into abuse,
Sending women and children forth to die,
Taking their own lives in a reign of terror,
Dying only so that others will die,
Honor and Sacrifice’s twisted mirror...
How much better, though, is the politician?
Who, citing “Weapons of Mass Destruction,”
Will bring ruin to his own population
More surely than outside intervention!
Seeds of Doubt,
Seeds of Destruction,
Knowledge without wisdom,
Children killing children,
Seeds that lead
To Death and Devastation.
