As more of the infidels lie down with their leadership dogs, they will catch the ticks of smirks, and the fleas of the Roman Circus. It is said that in the West, the streets are paved with fools' gold, and the female singers run naked in the streets, having many babies.Sometimes a study of ancient poetry can be a cure for these maladies, and is a pleasant way to spend an evening before one is tempted to indulge in debauchery, and before the readers are inclined to remove the clothes of modesty.
