Advice for the Brilliant

In all of my life
I’ve been wrong only twice.
Also, I offer
Terrific advice.

Suffice it to say
The brilliant should heed:
Boasting is dreadful
And tragic, indeed.

If I gave advice
And did it each day
I’d always have something
Stupendous to say.

Today I would say
“Humility’s good.”
That’s why I don’t brag
And I never would.


If I may suggest
A word to the wise—
The ones with dollars
Filling their eyes—

It may seem a surprise
If you’re living like kings,
But people get trapped
By material things.

Tip for the Reader

Sometimes, not always, but sometimes there will be a little bit of a facetious tone in my writing.

Real Advice

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. (Proverbs 27: 1)
