Titanic Truth
All agreed that Socrates, as a man, was no threat
But the questions that he asked bother bureaucrats yet.
So they planned a tragic plan;
Tried to muzzle this great man...
And his light has burned bright ever since.

And his light ... and his light ...
And his light has burned bright ever since
To the betterment of
Deep thought thinkers ... praise be to hemlock drinkers!
And his light has burned bright ever since.
