Combat Of Fools

 A   L   O   H   A !

Too many people

merely shop

the truths and 

opinions of others,

never troubling to look

deeply enough

to form their own.

Such folks

consider conversation

a competition.

Cheering on their 


allegiances, sadly failing

to find the thrill of

discovering fuller truth

by really listening 

to one another.

Collaboration is

the opposite

of capitulation.

Only the self-confident

can play in the fields

of ideas, growing

wisdom all the while.


that's what Pixie

tells me

this morning!
