Clever…

the veneer of intelligence –
thin as the pane of ice
hugging the curb in the gutter
melting under the heat
of the heel that shatters it

the Hitlers of the world
are never intelligent –
merely clever

bombast and rhetoric
appealing to the beastly
shadowside of universal
human nature may be clever –
however intelligence
is never jaundiced

there is no intelligent
purely personal gain –
no genuine going forward
when in great numbers
others remain behind

solutions are worth
their impartiality –
truth is non-sectarian
