Plato He Saw

Plato he saw
The mind as driver
The mind as charioteer
Holding the reins
Of running horses
Horses of desire

Plato he thought
The body can be reined
And the mind in charge
And the mind rational

Plate he assumed
The mind as charioteer
Having not seen the movies
Not even Cecil B
But having seen the real
Thing around

Plato he thought
The mind is charioteer
Skilled and trainable
Desire in harness
Well broken

Plato he assumed
The mind can handle
The starts and turns
Reins firmly in fingers

Plato he thought
We are charioteers
In charge
