Plato Was Right

Without exception, throughout all time,

governments devolve

 

Aristocracy, the Philosopher King,

benign in his resolve

 

Timocracy, the city state,

landed and secure

 

The Oligarch, his army placed,

to rule in peace and war

 

Democracy, each voice to shout,

as chaos takes the reins

 

When Tyranny must force its hand

—as socialists have deigned

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2020)
