*** I wrote this in 2009 during one of our (Sociology and I) most difficult times.
Mr. Giant, I’m ready to jump off your shoulder.
The view is mundane, now that I’m older.
I want to crawl back into Plato’s cave.
No need for chains, because I’ll behave.
I’ll stand still and face the wall…
I’ll happily ignore the philosopher’s call.
I’ll trade you my apathy for some ignorance…
if you’ll kindly help me get off this fence.
