The Poet

The Poet – a peculiar breed?
The Poet – a thorn to the side of the standard writer?
The Poet – a shaker of the black and white, rather a crusader of the grey?

Poets are a breed of their own, many have been touched or angered by Poets. They are not your run of the mill writer. They tend to view things in a different light. A light that exasperates some, while encourages others.
The Poet is somewhat akin to the Scientist. Poets, like to dissect their subject matter, analyse it, study it, understand it, get to know it and at times desire to prove it, in and through the words Poets prose. 

Like the Scientist, the Poet desires knowledge attained through study or practice, knowledge covering general truths of the operation of general laws, especially as obtained and tested through scientific method concerned with the physical world. The only difference is Poets use their words to do it, and they search deeper from that physical world. Sound odd to you, have a closer look at the two?
The Poet like the Scientist does an enormous amount of research too on their subject matter, not to mention observation, which enables them to come to the conclusion of their study.
