Tonight's instalment

CATULLUS 104

How can I curse my love, the one I prize

above all else, dearer than my own eyes?

One harsh vile word ? one syllable thereof?

I can't; I am so deeply lost in love.

But you'll say what you want to put her down

snarl like a monster, giggle like a clown.

I've been trying to get this one for days

CATULLUS 111

Aufillena, the best thing for a wife

is - love her husband truly all her life.

Or maybe simply put herself about

for some have morals, some make do without.

To fuck your uncle – low as you can go!

Your son's the only cousin that you know.
