observations on tibits of culture from the Roman Empire (in a punny way)
I.

Celebrating food.
Lying down, to stuff their face-
Pigs speaking Latin.


II.

"Genus irrita-
bile vantum,"...What the hell?
All sounds Greek to me!


III.

Rome had great sewers,
Invented by men with their
minds in the gutter.



Footnote: Genus irritabile vantum = "The irritable race of poets".... a quote by an ancient Roman author, also in Epistles II.2.109
