An adaptaition from The Knights by Aristophanes, in Paul Roche’s translation. The ONLY thing I’ve changed are the names. I couldn’t resist. It just made it so “contemporary.” At first I was only going to mail it to a couple of people. But, I have to post it.
(Colin Powell):I know, but you can’t keep anything from Cheney.
One leg’s plonked firm
in Iraq and the other just as firm on Capitol Hill;
And they’re spread so wide apart that his bottom’s fixed
plumb over Universal Buggerland,
with his fingers dipping into I-till-ia
and his mind in Kleptomania.
