Poetry Tuesday: Four Kinds of Men

Succinct little ditty by an ancient Persian known as Khosravani, back in the days where the years still only had three numbers (okay ,okay, c960AD).

There are four kinds of men who’ll get no fee from me
Since I’ve seen not a scrap of profit from their arts
The doctors with their drugs, the pious with their prayers
Magicians with their spells, stargazers with their charts.


Tell me what you think I need to know. . .
