Decendants Of The Wise


Our fathers unlike theirs, left us
Not with a technology to advance
But wise word to speak
Wise word to voice to d universe
To leave to our children's children
Didactic tales to tell them
Our culture we not only kept
But cherishes
Culture that will exist
Generations hereafter

We are BLACK
But wisdom we lack
Not our brain for sure is not black
We are special human
Who believe in wht they believe in
In us lies d brightest of ideas
For we are sons and daughter of the wise
Decendants of the witty
