to lead, laud

who is he who “should” and then “needs to”
but the ones who you’ll say won’t listen well—
the leader is the speaker of wisdom and manners;
methods are derived from every letter he utters—

many were the men who caught the symptoms and signs,
but the greater and the few see the reason and the rhyme—

healers and concealers, they share a common aim:
the art reveals a moment but hides away a name;
so, the scholar and students are the breath of one body,
what he gets we take and we bleed as one body—

through the process gems are found,
just as gold bids purification;
“there is, indeed, a proper saying
for every single meeting-station”
(upon him be peace)
