On Truth

Herclitus - From Raphael's School of Athens

Truth has no need for empty praise

By those attired in scholar’s garb,

So keenly with the microscopes

And scalpels of their intellects

Dissecting all her varied forms

And chaining them in epithets.

Serenely indifferent is she,

And goes about her changeless ways

With unrelenting certainty.

What army of old scientists

Could grasp her trailing tresses as

She travels through Eternity?
