Partisan



He has sense impression. He is keenly aware
of every mood and feeling, of every ache and care.
He has sense impression.
He is a partisan.
He emotes without knowing.
He is a sentient man.

He has rare perception. He is firmly certain
of every tale and theory of every might and main.
He has rare perception.
He is a partisan.
He decides without reason.
He is a prescient man.

He has lack of knowledge. He is blindly aslant
of every fact and detail, of every niche and cant.
He has lack of knowledge.
He is a partisan.
He reacts without thinking.
He is a nescient man.
