FOOL

Mark it, nuncle.
Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest,
Lend less than thou owest,
Ride more than thou goest,
Learn more than thou trowest,
Set less than thou throwest,
Leave thy drink and thy whore
And keep in-a-door,
And thou shalt have more
Than two tens to a score.

FOOL

Listen up, uncle.
Have more than you show,
Speak less than you know,
Lend less than you owe.
Ride more than you walk,
Don’t believe everything you hear,
Don’t bet everything on one throw of the dice,
Leave behind your booze and your whore,
And stay indoors,
And you’ll end up with more
Than two tens to a twenty.
