I must try not to
Attempt to differentiate
Between the intellects I appreciate
And my efforts to appraise them
As if each were different from the others.

Knowledge, a priori or acquired,
Is verified, bonified,
No matter it's orientation
Or organization.
How absurd
To try and rank
According to one's own think tank
And its esteem
Certain individual place upon our scale
Of intellectual quality
Since when reason
Asserts that
Thought, or love, and reason itself
Is universal
Above snobbish deserving
Of individual convoluted
Personal decision
Predicated upon
Big headed, pig headed opinions
Of worth -
Truth is blind,
Therefore unprejudiced and unequivocal.

Addie W. Williams
Dated 4/19/1982

Reviewed by Sandie Angel
Opinions are only perspective of one. Yes, they do differ from others sometimes; and there's no guarantee that opinions that are given are going to be accepted by others, for everyone is unique. We can take it or leave it by knowing that we are all different from one another.

A well-written thought-provoking piece.

I like that reference to pig headed opinions and I get a lot of that.
