Fools


Marcus Tullius Cicero once said it is the peculiar quality of a fool to perceive the faults of others and to forget his own

As ever they see but do not comprehend

Much easier it is to put the blame on others than to take on responsibility

Fools are well known for having to say something, anything, constantly

The art of distraction from their own mistakes pointing to any other direction is perfected daily

Fools sound wise, often sounding all knowing, and they are usually wrapped in an eye and sensory pleasing package

Their words are like honey dripped diamonds beautiful to see and hear but they seep into every corner sticking, blocking the truth

And blindly the masses follow without question or conviction mesmerized by the sounds of tinkling brass or sounding cymbals

In the end, we are all made fools

So then who is more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?
