More is the whole than a part: but half is more than the whole:
Clearly, The soul is the body: but is not the body the soul?
One and two are not one: but one and nothing is two:
Truth can hardly be false, if falsehood cannot be true.
Once the mastodon was: pterodactyls were common as cocks:
Then mammoth was God: now is He a prize Ox.
Parallel all things are: yet many of these are askew:
You are certainly I: but certainly I am not you.
by Swinburne, Algernon Charles 1870
