LATE BLOOMS: The Foolishness of Fools

Act, think like a fool
and it’s likely to be sure
they’ll treat you a fool.

Fools, when they are fooled
deny it even when they’re told
getting themselves fooled
fool themselves they ain’t been fooled
clinging to beliefs they hold.

And when you don’t mind
being treated like a fool,
maybe you’re a fool?
