I think it's about how even when you learn something, you're still ignorant
of something else. The Allegory of the Cave is about waking up to the fact
that we *are* ignorant, which is what the 'Plato's cave' bit of the title
references. The 'naked bed' is another cave, this one built by the speaker
of the poem of the world around him. As he wakes up, he slowly becomes
aware of the world outside. The last couple lines are about how s/he still
hasn't learned from the past, possibly because s/he goes through this every

i dont think it's about the Holocaust but im not sure. after reading it, it
seemed to be about time; how it is unforgiving and keeps on going, not
stopping for anyone. it's still but always moving, things happen that
matter and things happen that don't. time is indifferent.

I think this poem is about the inability of anyone with any feeling of
realizing the extent to which the Holocaust and other genocides have
ppervaded human history.
