We hear the voice of wisdom
while others shout ‘disregard’
We know whom to follow
yet doing so can be hard
Like seeing a puddle in the street
do we walk around?
Ah, it’s not too deep!
I’ll not stomp my feet
Then once in the middle
there is no victory fiddle
We now slosh on through
with wisdom laughing our due!

32: For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33: but whoever listens to wisdom will live in safety
and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
