The Maxims


Like the griots  of old

Relay a history told

I arrive like a scribe

To bring the words to life

The Grand Vizier

Making the words walk

Connecting the present and past

I enter like Ptahhotep

Who has a rep and that when served

The high court

He never half-stepped

Fifth Dynasty- I bring it to you

Words of wisdom

That was and is GOD given

The Maxims are living

In depth prevailing precepts

Tools used extolling

The divine virtues

Display kindness, self-control and maintain

Exhibit the philosophy of generosity

Truthfulness is the gain

GOD’s command stands

Just’us among us

Opulent virtue abounds

Les “da Prez” displays the Maxims…
