Something New

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

You may be old n’ grey
with trembling anatomy
or lie awake at night betray’d
by the disorder in your bowl.

You may see the world go astray
devastated by evil tongues
that spread defamation.
Learn each day something new.

Learn why the world wags
and what wags it,
that’s one sure thing that ne’er fades
that should ne’er elude you.

It’s the fuel that drives Self-worth
learn in youth, learn till old
benefit yourself each day
Wisdom comes naught overnight.
