Fool’s Honor


Proverbs 26:1

Like snow in summer and like rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool.


I predict this summer that it will snow

and this winter I’m sure the sun will glow

as for common sense – why do we reserve it?

and give honor to those who do not deserve it


Why do we bestow riches on common fools?

but neglect the respect of those in our schools

when a celebrity shows up all foot traffic will stop

but we walk on by when we see a cop

why do we specialize in singers we think are good?

but fail to name one teacher that educates our neighborhood

we have sport teams TV shows and which ones we think are tighter

but we’d just as soon blow bubbles than honor one fire fighter


Our priorities are upside down

and it’s the same in every town

the fact is we need a new set of rules

so start respecting the heroes and stop honoring fools
