Plato's Allegory

December 13, 2007
By Melinda Cohoon, Tigard, OR

Men who live in a cave
Never see light of day
Always seem to behave

Once released from their grave
They can only see gray
Men who live in a cave

The sun gives them a wave
They see the light of day
Always seem to behave

Realized they were a slave
Always wanting to stay
Men who live in a cave

They had never forgave
Who put them down today
Always seem to behave

They will only ever rave
About the light of day
Men who live in a cave
Always seem to behave
