Wisdom is old

Anger is the thread that runs the wool
my existence is the led that weights the fool
life is the joke that laughs the belly
instinct has to poke and spread the jelly
fellow men ride but they know the game
I play the tide and stay away from same
so rules I knew I signed the line
the soul once flew but the piper's fine
it's the one cost you can't avoid
lives are lost and men are toyed
the last is here so walk the edge
the thoughts are fear so take the pledge
against the net swim the channel
take the bet and loose the flannel
your movement heats and looses cold
feels like cheats but wisdom's old
