HEARKEN NOT


They sit in their clay thrones
And peer down, human drones
They throw muck and mock your words
And poke at them with heated swords
They leave the logs in their eyes
And tear your precious words like mice

They speak like they be queens and kings
And spit words that make you cringe
They make you naked like thread-less spools
Shall you blame them? No, some be fools

But when their words be true
Remove the specks, make a better you
Hear, heed their words, and be strong
And from here, you'll get there before long
