The Dirt

Examine the best humans closely enough
And you will find a fine selection of embarrassing
Sexual peccadilloes, bone-headed financial
Decisions, casual inconsistencies, ironic weaknesses,
And uncontrollable sorrows. You can choose
What to do with this information, if you believe
You can make choices: either none of them
Was wise, or it is wisdom, the very idea of being
Wise, that has some explaining to do, foolish
Species, meanings all marble and sages all clay.
