|is for Socrates|
A wise man was Socrates, the greatest
philosopher of his age, his test
of three - useful, good, and true
made idle gossip taboo,
but that isn’t always for the best.
Socrates was clearly no Othello -
an entirely different kettle, that fellow,
and his take on gossip and wives;
and the sudden taking of lives
minus due diligence using a pillow.
Neither good nor bad can be absolute
perceptions change, so the point is moot
it doth one gobsmack
how Socrates could lackthe pea-size glob of sense to work this oot.
