Clerihews on Greek philosophy
The ancient Stoics
Said "There's no need for heroics.
Clear thinking and self-control
Will best sustain your body and soul".
Had seen a Klein bottle,
He might have linked its strange topology
To something sublime in theology.
That change is an illusion inside our head.
When pressed to explain the illusion,
He showed considerable confusion.
The Pre-Socratics taught
That the earth was flat, as they truly thought.
But the later Greek sages
Worked out the truth in a few simple stages.
