…THE WISE – A poem.


They believe the Old are obsolete.
They burn bridges and widen rifts.
Not grasping with wisdom comes gifts,
and balance makes a base concrete.
Two can get twice done in one beat.
Walk the halls with something to add,
setting the futures launching pad.
But as the recent past tells us,
none listens enough to discuss.
Hope falls before a power-grab.


A companion poem to my haiku THE FOOLISH… for the Haiku Challenge this week of MAD and Sane.
