Wisdom calls out to reject it not

Mockers delight in mockery, their desired lot

Wisdom seeks to tend to the ears of the wise

Graves of mockers haunt, for wisdom they despise


Wisdom cries out to you for understanding

Mockers prefer the crocked path, so demanding

Wisdom holds long life in her right hand

Mockers tear from life, embracing darkness plan


Wisdom paces like the first gleam of dawn

Mockers writhe in rapidity’s storm

Wisdoms work is fruitful & lasting

Mockers slumber in poverties casting


Wisdom speaks to guide you in all your ways

Mockers winks, plots, and signals the heart astray

Wisdom is captivated by the beauty within

Mockers lips drip with lust and wayward sin


Wisdom raises her voice to truth and peace

Mockers fool the foolish in unleashing tease

Wisdom frees the soul to reach new heights

Mockers ensnares its victims, its remedy bites


Wisdom gives birth to decrees of justice

Mockers fuse in their manipulative clusters  

Wisdom dwells together with prudence

Mockers entice ruthless turbulence


Wisdom provides perfume that is pure

Mockers frequent lewd aroma’s that lure

Wisdom takes her stand where the paths meet

Mockers long to roam in their deceitful feat


A lesson from Wisdom we all need to learn

It’s worth more than rubies, be alert to discern

It wont lead you astray, or cause you to fall

Rather, Wisdom will guide you to wisdoms call
