Reason - Poem by Morgan Michaels

My dear, when people disagree with you
Must you conclude they dislike you?
That's irrational
And terribly self-indulgent.
Can people notlike you,
Your convictions, that is,
Yet be free to draw reasonable conclusions?
For people who think, that is, the un-distractable,
Diversity of thought is no different than diversity of culture.
But disagreement, dislike?
I think not
Such bundling subverts logic-
and subversion of logic
Is the only valid reason for dislike.
