Know Nothing

He knew it all
yet knew nothing.
What good is knowledge
without wisdom or
the esteem of others
who also have knowledge
but no compassion?

A fool is a fool
no matter what
cap and gown he wears.

Without the love
of God in his heart
he remains an ignorant
beast of his burdens.

Ah, but he who walks
in the Light
with generosity
and love
is a man truly blessed.

Wise is he who chooses
to serve the Lord.
