Bottom line, it doesn't have one;
or if it does, it's for the souvenir value,
a knickknack marketed under ghastly light
in the stale air of an outlet mall stretching
from here to eternity somewhere in Minnesota,
That's where yesterday will be made available,
shiny as today, where tomorrow's children
won't be doomed to repeat anything,
because it doesn't count as repeating if no one
ever finds out what happened the first time;
where they won't weep to discover much,
much less that Socrates has covered his face;
