Nicomachean Ethics~by Paul F. Lenzi



Nicomachean Ethics


“Conversation” by Engelina Zandstra

I once shared a bottle
with old Aristotle

philosopher’s wine
from a curious vine

grown in rational ground
where the logic was sound

we tore into those views
Nicomachus would use

to guide men to create
a harmonious state

we argued and fought
about ethics that taught

different means to same ends
that make enemies friends

till we found quite chagrined
when three sheets to the wind

we had cured all the ills
that had plagued these good hills

the thing about wine
it lays truth on the line


  1. thank you for sharing my poem with your readers
