Define Wise

We once called them wise men, duffing our caps, giving them 

all the respect we’ve got, only

for them to begin doing things

only foolish men would do,

making fools out of us.

Friendly Thoughts

On a very long bench, she sat,
Toying with her fingers,
Like she did everyday,
Freak! loner!
She would hear them say,
Not with their mouths,
But yes,
she had seen those words in their eyes.
Yet, she paid them no mind.
She would give a slight scoff,
And in her head,
she would reply instead;
“Y’all have no idea,
I’ve got very good friends―
They are my thoughts!”.
