Prompt 23: Folly

Thanks to Edward S. Gault of Forest River Journal for this week's prompt of folly, these poems, and the image.

He was the town fool
Then he went on a journey
returned a hero.
Other kids teased her,
She was always the last picked
later, got Nobel.
He stole millions,
Bankrupted the company
got "Man of the Year"
On Stage he told truth
As people split sides laughing
many words bleeped out!
(for George Carlin R.I.P)
Once upon a time,
A kingdom lacked wisdom-O!
made the fool their king.
The Professor said:
"Foolish Civilizations
live like kings, die fast".

(Edward S. Gault, 2008)
