  the wise
have
no minds
of their own
they adapt
to the will
of the people
as a whole
  treating
the good
and the bad
as
good
treating
the faithful
and the faithless
in
good faith
thus
you
develop
goodness
and faith
to the world
the wise
seem, well,
undecided
their hearts
floating
uncertainly
in a muddle
alert
and clever,

some people
avoid

being fooled
but
the wise
are as
impressionable
as babies
