Poetry of Kansas

Latter Day Logic.

Cold is simply lack of heat__
    Absence of caloric;
Maxim one need not repeat,
    Truth that's not theoric.
Night is absence of the day,
    Darkness lack of light;
Does it follow as some say,
    Wrong is lack of right?
I am not a sinner then,
    Even if not good;
Just a fog upon the fen,
    Tree devoid of wood.
__J. M. Cavaness.
