Teacher and Fool

An illiterate teacher does more damage

Than a wise fool who’s your salvage

Beware, friends! Ignorance awaits

Don’t fall for such pathetic traits

A teacher who pretends to know

An actor with nothing to show

A wise fool who knows a great deal

Yet reticent without even an appeal

Both pretend, but who’s your ally!?

Which of the two is better and why?

A fool who knows more than he lets on

Or a teacher who knows little and gets on!?
