The Foolishness of Plato



Would my hill one day dwarf Mount Everest? 
Go high above spiritual Himalaya 


This is not the first time such craze 
Proclamation has been made 


Men have sold their all for dreams  
Time has made fools of men  


Yet the possibility remains until such time 
The possibility remains hanging 


Without a way of casting the wise aside 
To honour greatness and mock stupidity 


Dreams remain hanging, like an apple before fall
The last grain in the hourglass would tell 


To make greatness of men it shall 
Or show how foolish Plato was

  1. Time definitely does make fools of men; but I would consider Plato to be a wise man. Lots to think about in your words.

  2. Each couplet could stand alone with plenty to give one pause. Nicely done.

  3. I like the "dreams remain hanging" couplet best.
