Intellect is the answer

Intellect is the answer

You being successful; I see walking on tight rope
In process; have to be very cautious; please note
In your way; I see many hurdles; you have to cope
Walking on bumpy road; watchful not to be off road

Moving very fast; but not giving any second thought
Moreover; you are copying as it is; don't know what
System workable for one slot; as it is can't you adopt
Needs to be modified as suited and require in your slot

I am not an expert but whatever I say; has; value a lot
Have been moving from society to society; I know a lot
Whatever; I say without any reservation; you learn a lot
No favorite; except ethics; a replica of truth; make a note

Money and power comes; we forget ethics; dance on road
Consider; others are fools; let loose rein of terror for what?
You adopted same attitudes; others progress to block
End result is; collapse of such powers; in pursuit hot

There are lessons to learn; if learn you are wise in your slot
And those who wants to just copy; will always be in loss
Always; move ahead smartly; so no one your way can block
Whatever you do; intellect is the answer; it may never you flop.
