Flash Fiction #173 – The Wisest in the World

There was a prophecy that on January 1st, 2024,

in Chicago, Illinois at Windigo Tower,

the wisest person in the world would be taking questions.

All those who thought themselves wise clamored to present.

But it was agreed by all that came,

though some were very wise indeed,

none was the wisest in the world.

To them, the prophecy had been wrong.

No one paid mind to Margie at the entrance,

begging for money with a knowing smile streaking her dirty face.

And because of this, they were none the wiser.
