The Three Wise Apes

The Three Wise Apes

1 min
133


Long ago there was a nobleman,

His wordings paved the way it all began.


What you tend to see or hear,

Isn't always the truth dear.


No wonder the world is in so much chaos,

Where one's gain is another man's loss!


When you are confused about the path to take,

Follow the advice of the three wise apes!


If you can't avoid seeing the evil,

Ensure you don't end up believing the devil.


If hearing the evil becomes a must,

Try hard to filter the words and adjust.


If you're forced to repeat the talk of the evils,

Ignore and neglect else away you walk.


The world today has so many evils,

The saviors are far less than the kills.


It is everybody's individual duty,

To curb the evil and maintain integrity.


Be wise enough to decide what's true,

Do not let others words' hold your tongue too.


Always remember it's better to be quiet before,

Than blame and punish and then ignore.


Try to be positive whatever it takes,

You can even be better than the three wise apes!
