“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ~ Plato

Were you afraid of the dark?
Are you now? I guess technically
I am afraid of the dark
for the first time in my life.
What I’m afraid of, though,
is driving at dusk since
I basically totaled my car.
Was Plato right?
Is it a tragedy when men
(would Plato now say people?)
are afraid of the light?
Is that being afraid of life?
What do you fear?
Are you afraid of Covid-19?
Are you afraid of
people who don’t fear Covid-19?
What would Plato think?
