A stack of stones, a pile of sand, these things have weight for sure.
But coping with a fool all day is harder to endure.
When you see trouble coming, if you’re clever you will hide.
A fool, in contrast stays the course to trouble amplified.
They will not change from what you say, or even if you shout.
Their foolishness has been ingrained and won’t be driven out.
