This & That 3



When I demand this, I want this.
When I deny that, I refuse that.
This this.  That that.
But tomorrow, or today, I may
confuse this with that, that with that other.
Or move my attention or desire,
converting that to this in an instant.
I assert, I refute, but
I never know a thing without reference
to my reference, to my preference.
Not that.  Not this.
