Pure logic, like pure oxygen,
For humans creates too rich an atmosphere,
That is unsafe for humans to dwell in for all but short periods.
It is an atmosphere that contains no trace,
Of Love or kindness,
Of compassion or tenderness,
Of integrity or forgiveness,
Of Hope or repentance.
Pure logic might help us do the maths,
But with no trace of any intangibles,
And nothing to breathe life into the human spirit,
It should be used as directed by those who,
Have built up a healthy supply of wisdom.
