Just how far have we come? What have we accomplished.
Perhaps full circle?

The Wisdoms
Rita P. J. Hestand

Wisdom comes with time they say
And we suppose they're right.
But what a terrible price to pay
For us to see the light!

And so with time we have grown
yet still we have not grasp.
With all the troubles we have known,
we've failed to meet the tasks.

But we are fools, and fools must teach
the lessons we have learned,
to each and every child we reach
The Wisdoms we've now earned!
