He takes an academic interest in what’s true.
He sees it as a subject for discussion, for appraisal.
Is a walnut of the same family as hazel?
Nothing seems to faze him all his days.
He observes people and their ways.
They repel him, he finds them repulsive.
Is he an obsessive compulsive?
Does an academic fall in love?
Good God no, Heavens above!
