Watch out. They're about.;
With well-rehearsed excuses.
The "wise men", they speak in tongues,
Spew out proverbs like Confucius.
Well that's all right for them,
Practice and practice makes perfect,
Receive applause for smart things said,
Preaching to the converted.
But I am not a "rookie",
I've heard it all before,
I've taken all they've had to throw,
And I'm taking nothing more.
They all can chant forever,
They all can go to Hell,
I'll not succumb to games with words,
Nor to their self-opinionated spell.
The prophets of apocalypse
Sign loud a merry tune,
Destruction follows in their wake,
And it won't come too soon.
