The Triumph of Reason

Reason remains on both sides
Of every conflict. Reason
Is by nature a waffler.

Endless equivocation—
Going on forever is
The reason reason survives.

Reason will never produce
Definitive victory,
Which is unreasonable,

A vicious, marvelous dream.
But no triumph of passion
Wallowing in gore occurs

Without a shred of reason,
A little pride in reason—
That’s the triumph of reason.
