The Apology
kripto

there is a hypocrisy in this world we all fail to see,
 1
That you and I, we are all surrounded by a layer of stupidy, no one in this world can be all wise
 2
however many claim to, and that is not right
 3
first step admit to the world your ignorance
 4
and no longer live in disguise
 5
and relax before I am given hemlock
 6
I only mean to alleviate the pressures of tradition  
 7
A professor of literature should not masquerade as a master of numbers
 8
therefore a priest has no knowledge in leading  a country and a leader can not save the souls of his people
 9
And that is an infallible truth, If you dont believe me, well thats probably for the best
 10
I may be the owner of some wisdom
 11
but in reality and real life I am little more than just a mess
 12
