the fool

learns from their own mistakes

the wise

from the experiences of others

& for too long

I held position one

expecting some kudos


from efforts given

being my own man

though I did learn sometimes

from others

she accused me of lying

levelled the charge of adultery

there stinking at my feet

& I spent time denying

until the thought struck home

she wasn’t asking

she was telling

it was her lies her affairs

she wanted exposed

needed raised

& all I had to do was listen

to what was really being said

these things being easier

to do accuse

than admit
