Philosophy 101

there’s a hole in Greece
where once in peace
lay old Aristotle
they dug it up
found a Starbucks cup
and an old Heinz ketchup bottle
but the sage himself
was not inside
he’d nipped out for a drink
and there he met
poor Socrates
having a little think
upon the theme
of who we are
and the meaning of our life
but up he sprang
when the phone rang
shouting “I’m not here if that’s the wife!”
