The Philosopher’s Counterpart

He who has wisdom

Is worthy of praise,

Yet wise men do not  need such admiration.

He of fit body

Needs less caution of dainties,

Yet to seek them is not his preoccupation.

He of good spirits

Will enjoy entertainments,

But he who needs them is not the said man

So I’ll enjoy the praise, dainties,

Entertainments for them,

Happily serving as only I can.
