Vain Philosopher

§
There is a fella, wise in his own ‘eyes,’
That is free to proclaim and criticize;
Willing at a ‘drop of a hat’ to “help” you realize,
No faults he has, he “mirrors” them to those, outside.
The ‘beam’ in his own eyes –
He can’t see – for the “splinter“in yours.
No one has the ‘inside track’ to Wisdom’s Course.
You know he will win, a ‘jack’ for his horse.
Educated beyond wisdom’s reach,
His strain of logic, he cannot teach;
He will impart, what he cannot preach.
Preach what he cannot impart;
For with him, reason will depart.
