Poem:True wisdom

Is wisdom found in argument, boasting, or sharp debate,
or is it found in selfishness, in envy, or in hate?
Does wisdom fire ambition that is ruthless in its drive,
or cause a fight or quarrel in the battle to survive?
Does wisdom harbour bitterness, or twist the truth for gain,
to prove a point in conflict, or to conquer with disdain?
Can wisdom be so heartless and so careless in deceit?
Or does evil, fed by vanity, lead people to defeat?
