    Young people with serious issues

    telling others what to do

    Pretending everything smells

    of roses in the garden

    while everything is rotting.



    Others asking questions

    that are answered by those

    who don’t really understand

    paying complements instead

    of giving sage advice.



    Would you ask a blind

    man for directions?

    Would you inquire of

    an infant for knowledge?

    Would you seek financial

    advice from the destitute?



    If my questions sound stupid

    yours are more so to me

    Tell me why you seek

    wisdom from the ignorant

    why you try and draw

    water from an empty well?
