In life we may be asked to be-friend
both a fool and a wise one.
The fool will smile and charm us,
take our gifts, ask for more, break their word,
and soon leave to find others to manipulate.
Be always kind.
A wise one asks for nothing, shares
whatever they have
and vows eternal friendship.
Be grateful to the fool
for they have served as a teacher
and you have learned who NOT to become.
Pray for them.
To the wise one, offer friendship,
pray together and begin to build
a universal community of good
with a loving foundation.
Are you a fool or a wise one?
