Plato Has Said - Poem by samuel nze

Plato has said a
Fool at forty is one forever
He did not remember
The senile jester
Solomon has said it pains him to
See a man proud over nothing
He did not remember
The vain politician
Socrates has said a
Reckless life is not worth living
He did not remember the hopeless libertine
I have said it is useless
Categorizing humanity
I did not remember
The sages of old
