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.
