Diotima - Poem by Morgan Michaels

'Diotima', I asked, 'what is truth? '

'Truth', she said, is the operation of logic welcomed by Sentiment so long as it upholds certain foregone conclusions.'

'Well, then, ' I continued, scratching my head', 'what is Sentiment? '

'Sentiment', she said, 'is the conviction of the majority that its conclusions have something to do with the truth.'

'Oh. Thanks.'
