Poet's often mistaken edgy writing for clever;
entertaining writing's clever.

I will use you forever
I know what your about
I will take you out
And show you around

Being caught's the only difference between cleverness and crime.

If all the good people were clever,

Eve in wonderland
Jun 18, 2014

If all the good people were clever,
  And all clever people were good,
The world would be nicer than ever
  We thought that it possibly could.

But somehow 'tis seldom or never
  The two hit it off as they should,
The good are so harsh to the clever,
  The clever, so rude to the good!

So friends, let it be our endeavour
  To make each by each understood;
For few can be good, like the clever,
  Or clever, so well as the good.

Beautiful poem by Elizabeth Wordsworth, thanks to Bucky Fuller - The critical path

Challenge.
Change.
Climb through the world--
Confident and warm,
Clever and elegant--
Curiosity unabated.
Conquer doubts and
Challenge.
Change.

For my niece, Caroline Jean, born on the 19th of November in 2015.
There are so many words I wish to share with you, to protect you and guide you. This world is a cruel place, but someone beautiful like you has to potential to challenge and change it.

βέƦẙḽ Dṏṽ the Smartass Rabbi

Who the general public perceives
as our most righteous men
are often extremely clever hypocrites.
The truly righteous are the truly hidden.

Poets develop cleverness with words
to compensate for their unattractiveness.

It's not always a physical unattractiveness,  but there is definitely some kind of compensation mechanism at work that compels us to show off our linguistic superiority. This is not a judgmental statement ~ just my observation.
Agree or disagree?
