WORDS OF WISDOM
(2/26/14)


"you've just
GOT
to read this!"

there's never
been a better
introduction
to a piece
of literary tripe

they are impressed
because they live
quite sheltered
existences
in regard
to ideas
and philosophy

they are thrilled
by the obvious
because
they are frightened
of any true
innovative thinking

they want
to be warm
and comfy
inside

not challenged
or threatened

they think
that they are
illuminated
but they are
only fooled
by plagiarized Proverbs

edited Ecclesiastes

horribly mangled
verses
sutras
tracts
and teachings
from centuries
or millennia
of true literature

they truly
believe
that they have
discovered
something new
and insightful

they do
give me
some insight

insight
into their true
natures
when they hold
such pages

such links
and blogs

beneath my nose

they all
smell
tainted
of triteness

someone
slightly updates
and rearranges
phrases of antiquity
and plasters them
over colorful
backgrounds
or emotional photos
and the masses
melt
in assumed
deep thought

they are
so
very proud
of their erudition

I smile
and say

"yes

that's
really good"

I express
nothing
new here

but at least
I am aware
of the fact

at least
I am aware
of my own
stink
