Wisdom built a house of splendor; laid a table very fine.
Sent her servants to announce a feast of meat, of bread, and wine.
To the simple / and the senseless / doors are opened, all is ready.
Turn in here and learn from wisdom. Hear the call and heed the sign.
Loudly shouting, to the simple, foolishness is not remiss.
Calling out to all who hear her, “Ignorance is highest bliss.
Stolen water’s / sweet to drink and / secret pleasures are the be-st.”
Listen, children, to these voices. Opt for wisdom. She’s the best.
