Many folks claim to know a bit about critical thinking.
They imagine it describing that rigorous deliberation
which surely must occur behind tall, solid maple
double doors in times of great challenge with
wise leaders chosen by those less thought
ful wearing out rugs, handsome pipes,
and brandy snifters while thinking
as big as colossal contemplation
will allow but even this limited
understanding of such a fine
and important human capacity
abandons them in the crowded waiting room of stale ideas.
Thank you, friend.
