On a Sentence by Santayana

Know that

Its essence lies
Not in how

It is delivered,
But how

It is received by the minions
Condemned to repeat it.


  1. Wow, this one is multi-layered and so powerful, Vassilis. It reminds me of life in the blogosphere.

  2. Thanks, Elisabeth; incidentally, this poem was written soon after I had read your comments about the blogosphere on my previous post--coincidence?

  3. Oh THAT sentence! :) but which history are we condemned to repeat, given current efforts toward 'revision'? :)

  4. Annie,

    Which history? History has a tendency to revise itself again and again and again, so your question remains moot.
