Wisdom Or Education

Wisdom Or Education

2 mins
279


A little learning is a dangerous thing 

Like half baked knowledge is akin to nothing 


There was a time when we had thinkers and philosophers of a kind 

Who were all well versed in matters of all times 


Their thirst for knowledge made them travel and seek 

Living in lands of different cultures and streaks 


Be it Science, Religion or History or Politics 

They believed in the integration of knowledge in every nuance and trick


No wonder they were called, great men, Philosophers, and Saints 

Who expounded reams and reams of knowledge to spread and paint


They went on to become the beacons for the coming generation's mass

Like the pole star leading the seamen to their destination, without the compass 


They are cherished to this day with great respect and reverence 

Those who brought pride to the country's honor and elegance


Coming to our generations of today's times 

Education is a means to pay and get away with every time 


No doubt many learned men are born every day 

But men who have no grey matter', yet get away 


Agreed money is the all-time panacea for everyone today 

You can buy health, education, and position in every which way 


An educated fool is filled with book knowledge and lacks common sense 

For him, education is only paper certificates and rest else is nonsense 


Every parent wants to give the best of education that one can buy 

But weighing education with money is far worse a try 


Because a fool thinks he is wise 

And an educated person thinks he is a fool likewise 


Education bought and education earned are two worlds apart 

Like cheese and chalk, that can never get together


A learned man may not be as much rich

But a foolish man can be stinking rich 


When there is a thirst for knowledge, there learning happens ...And 

When there is a clamor for buying education, wisdom slackens 


If one is born with a silver spoon 

He may buy comfort, luxury, and leisure  

But no one can snatch education from a poor man in any form or measure 


Let's put on our thinking caps and see the crux of education 

Do we want someone with knowledge or mere paper certification?
