Re: Discuss Amongst Yourselves....

<<  truth . . . what IS truth? >>

from Lawrence Ferlinghetti's "A Coney Island Of The Mind"

    'Truth is not the secret of a few'
you would maybe think so
                        the way some
and cultural ambassadors and
                especially museum directors

    you'd think they had a corner 
                                on it
        the way they
                walk around shaking 
    their high heads and
                        looking as if they never
        went to the bath
                room or anything

        But I wouldn't blame them
    if I were you
            They say the Spiritual is best conceived
        in abstact terms
                and then too
            walking around museums always makes me
                want to
                    'sit down'
        I always feel so
    in those
            high altitudes"
