If Homer had been really, REALLY lazy:Agamemnon, wroth, put down his foot.
So Achilles in his tent stayed put.
Till the gods interfered,
And Patroclus got speared:
Then a whole lot of Trojans went “Phut!”
Odysseus, chock-full of guile,
Had adventures, returned from exile,
Confronted the suitors
(Those rotten freebooters),And slaughtered them all in fine style.
What happens when I wake up at 3 AM:An amateur burglar, quite reckless,
Stole a Duchess’s emerald necklace,
But returned it perforce
In a spasm of remorse,
For his soul was not Hydeous but Jekyllous.
Between sitting and tying one on,
And going and mowing the lawn,
Con the pro- and the anti-,
And decide: “A votre santé!I shall hobnob with Anacreon!”

comes news from Chicago
that has more than a whiff of brimstone about it: via Fox News, we learn of a law firm that has put up on a billboard the advertisement displayed above.Jack Cade, thou shouldst be living in this hour -
Appallingly, attorneys advertise,
In words and images that blast the eyes,
Their matchless loyalty to Satan’s power.
“Thy marriage to thy happiness shall prove
A stumbling block, a vile impediment.”
So, lying, they defame God’s sacrament
Embodying Divine and human love.
No devotee of Moloch or of Baal
Did e’er conceive a scheme so foul, so fell.
The Devil, doubtless, delves a deeper Hell
Than any, into which such souls may crawl.
Great Cade, return, that we may see them cower,
And by thy hand be cast down from their tower!
