A Platonist’s Reply to Mei Yaochen’s Sorrow

Mei Yaochen:
“But no one
Has ever come
Back from the

Underground Springs.”
Why are they, and rightly,
Called the Springs
If nowhere they go?

That’s why I believe
That the Springs are true
And Springs for real.
And what makes

Mei Yaochen
Or anyone believe
That from nowhere
We came to a life,

That even now
We’re not returned
That there’s a place
Or something

That doesn’t give (out)
Anything it has
Even though
We are and myriads

Of other beings past
Our own and
Everyone else’s counting
And that if there are

At least two points,
Partial and discreet,
There’s only one way
The part in-between is crossed?

1. Every citizens has the right to have opinion and belief (including poetry in the case of V.S.) fact-checked and thus blocked by anonymous fact-checkers hired by Zuckerberg.
2. Every citizen has the right bordering on a voluntary obligation-cum-extrajudicial-conviction to remain at home and be unemployed out of fear that everyone around carries diseases and is presumably deadly.
3. While at home he or she or they can still voice her and his or their opinions for which FB and Zuckerberg has the right to put them in a FB jail and even shut them up forever.
4. Double standards are the only standards we have and will ever have. Live with it and move along.
