Better Be Poor Than A Liar - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Listen to advice and,
Accept instructions;
Life!
A fool has no delight in understanding;
So, better be poor than a liar.
Wine is a mocker so, be wise;
Strong drink is a brawler so, be wise;
Life!
Even a child is known by his or her actions.

A baleful veto! !
In auspicious terms;
But, regrets are not unthinkable.
Muse!
Casting lots will sttle the contentions;
But, a fool has no delight in understanding.

Life!
To think the unthinkable;
But, a person who cherishes understanding will find success.
Muse!
A fool's lips enter into contention;
And, a foolish son is the ruin of his fasther.
