The Philosophers

The philosophers don’t aim for conclusive evidence.
They plough the endless lands where it can be found, or lost.

The philosophers don’t paint pictures of watery lilies.
They trudge their way toward the snowcaps.

The philosophers don’t carve love poems into the bark.
They dig beneath the roots to where the core burns, or dies.

The philosophers don’t prescribe the antidote to ignorance.
They underwrite the persistence of curiosity.
