Objective in Sight!

What I believe to be true of this thing
Is what you believe to be true of that!
This and that are both separate beings
That cannot be one; like fit abs and fat.
A rover, the dog, cannot smell what I
Can smell; yet if he could tell what he
Senses through the ears, and what he espies
Through his nose, you may make such a sortie
With those that could not hear his doggy words
That it may be better for you not to
Have, in the first place, those barking words heard!
Though some people are in fact mad, too true.
How then to know, how then to judge without
Constants to show us? Shall we trudge about?
