February 21, 1997


I had the facts

my knowledge of the truth was overwhelming

Having studied for years

I knew the answer

and I was bold enough to venture into the arena

with an un-armed foe




All my facts

all my wisdom

all my carefully marshalled thought

couldnt  undermine his armour

True it was armour of ignorance

not a bit of truth containing

But he believed it

and I could not change him


No matter how I argued

or how strong the thoughts put forth

if he chooses not to believe them

I have lost

I cannot change him

until I change his foundation

and that I cannot change
