To a Logician

I’ve been thinking a lot about the blogosphere in general lately, and one of the things that recently popped into my mind was a poem written by my grandmother back when she was studying English at Stanford:

To A Logician

Say you thus and say you so–
Tell me, do you really know
What it is you speak about?
Does there never come a doubt
As to the validity
Of the things you say must be?
Is it true vocabulary
Really makes a man so very
Much more certain than the rest–
Who, it is to be confessed,
Cannot follow very clearly
All the words you use and merely
Wonder what it’s all about?
Come, sir! Do you never doubt?
Say you thus and say you so–
Tell me, do you really know?

~Margaret Tuttle, October 1939
