"The Love of Wisdom"

Philosophy is awesome, yes

It helps us think of what is best

Critical thinking

Ignorance shrinking

It's fun finding knowledge to test


John Locke speaks of political truth

Aquinas talks of ethics uncouth

Kant is transcendent

And Russell resplendent

Socrates enjoyed teaching the youth


Words towards the art can be heard quite rash

It’s worthless, dull, intellectual trash

But dare to see beauty

And truth becomes duty

Just like poets, none do it for cash

Our world
