Assorted Bits of Wisdom
from the
University of Common Sense

LAWYERS are the "spoilers' in our society
If there was justice in the law it's now a mockery.

Simple problems, through delays and paper-shuffling tricks
Become complex and costly, too - a scheme for lunatics!

The justice system is a joke . .If you have lots of money
A sleazy, greedy lawyer changes murderer to bunny.

"NO, THANKS. . . I Already Read a Book!"

I gave a man a book to read; he gave it back to me
"I read a book once, long ago, it made no sense to me.."

This fool had little schooling - NEVER a stumbling block
Those who learn to LOVE TO READ gain wisdom 'round the clock.

(You'll find one at the end of your arm)

Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day
Teach that man to catch a fish and he will earn his pay.

Welfare should be WORK-fare to give folks dignity
Show them how to help themselves and THAT'S real charity!

WHAT?. . . ME, WORRY?. . .

Apathy is a disease that says "I don't give a damn"
I'm just glad to let my life be run by Uncle Sam.

But Uncle Sam is not the wealthy "Unc" he used to be
Our wealth is quickly vanishing through blind stupidity.
