In the Hell Built for the Rich

In the hell built for the rich

The idle rich, and the angry rich

Do their dance in the river styx.

 

How I can see it,

But the translator cannot.

In fact, nobody has ever found it before.

 

Probably because a poet knows their poetry.

And we know why it’s written.

 

While Plato lambasted us for not being credible

I found poetry is not our catalog of factoids

But rather the history of our moral knowledge.
