Mind Power.

There are computers, TV's and pills,
To banish ignorance and its ills,
So more of their mind can make,
And from life some extra take.

But as cleverer all become,
Thinking they have in life found fun,
Wisdom does not grow,
For it is wisdom slow.

No pills can speed it up,
Or alter its makeup,
But intelligence so quick,
With strategies so slick,
Wisdom's always left behind,
Caught in its own bind,
And as it is so slow,
It's viewed often as a foe,
Till the day the brain runs out of luck,
And strategies become unstuck,
Giving speed its chance our world to ....
After which we'll think new,
Things Neanderthals all knew.
