Logicians fall in love. They syllogize:
all lovers feel this aching in their heart
each time they see her, when they have to part.
Heartache’s a symptom that they realize

means they have fallen sick, are sick with love.
Logic demands they struggle to get well,
avoid her, but avoiding her is hell.
This seems illogical, (but see above –

it is the common state that lovers share.
Logicians are all human, share the lot
of other humans, who all lose the plot
well lost for love.) Strict logic must despair.

Love turns logicians humble, sets aside
their rational, their syllogistic pride.
