Like Honey on Your Palate

An honest leader loves the truth and smiles on all who bear it,

that smile bears life like springtime clouds and honey on your palate.

Get wisdom with some insight. It exceeds the price of silver

or gold if that’s your preference.  Get wise; you’ll be a winner.


The anger of a leader is a thing well worth avoiding. 

Its signs are warnings to get out for soon there’ll be destroying.

When you are haughty and feel proud watch out for your destruction.

If you don’t know the way to go, the poor can give instruction.
