Beware, logician, before you expound
Your propositions in the marketplace.
That language isn't spoken in the town;
Your world's not everything that is the case.

Be silent when you shouldn't speak, and trust
The lesson of the bull that meets the sword
To write his bloody shape on that day's dust —
Unlooked at and unread, a foreign word.
