Aristotle's Wisdom

Friend - A single Soul Dwelling
Within Two Separate bodies

..................................Aristotle 384-322 B.C.




Did the crucifixion…ever cross his mind
As those eloquent words…poured out
Could the love …which Judas...displayed..to Christ
…Be the friendship …he wrote…about

Were his thoughts…of the “Shipp”…lost and adrift
…Somewhere…on the sea…of deceit
The man…on the stand…the tale of betrayal
…Of whom…did the philosopher…speak

Was the white Bronco…we saw…on the road…one day
…Perhaps....the vehicle....which friendship drove
During…the dream…the philosopher…dreamt
…When…that poignant verse…he wove

Of two…distinct and separate…bodies
…Where…A single soul…dwells within
Might Aristotle’s wisdom…be some…sacred vision
…Through which…God…defined…A friend

…Should ever…”my friend”…be troubled
Shoulders bent...from the load....they tote
May there…be the friend…to comfort…that friend
…Of such...as the philosopher........wrote
