Cookie Wisdom

Updated on October 16, 2013

Cookie Wisdom

Do as I say
Not as I do
The un-carved block
The Tao of Pooh

Wisdom is gained
Innocence is lost
Life goes on
That is the cost

Learn from mistakes
But often too late
With every decision
A new path you create

Fortunes from cookies
Signs from the sky
Careful you don’t get
Caught up in a lie

Perhaps the best wisdom
Is no wisdom at all
But I can’t choose for you,
You make the call.
