History of Philosophy
Plato said, “Let there be God”
And there was God.
Perfect in every way

Aristotle then placed Man
Above all else
Except God

Jesus and Mohammed said,
You can live forever, "IF”

While Buddha asked,
“Why would I want to?”
And left the wheel.

They ignore observations
Of the Teacher,
“Vanity, all is vanity”

To which Lao Tzu chuckled,
“Probably, but I can’t know that”

“Right” said Epictetus,
“So just sit back
  And enjoy the show, .....
  (If you prefer).”
