the symbols of fear

many years have passed since i learned the greek alphabet.
the first cause was, as always, the blind bard from ionia,
followed by the three tragedians and the father of comedy.
but the symbols once drawn by the hand of plato and aristotle
now mainly represent the variants of concern, with the omicron
just beginning to fill the red lists.
