The gods have been kind indeed; finally 
Out of nowhere, the Senate’s agreed to hear 
Our petition with pomp and circumstance— 
This promises to be a very fortuitous year. 

Today we have the airing 
Of righteous grievances, 
Tomorrow and the next 
More of the same 

Till Acheron freezes over—hear, hear 
Let the gods bear witness, 
One more splendid, glorious year. 


  1. How lucky we all are when the crooked creatures with the long, grasping fingers deign to acknowledge our condition, eh? Oh, joy!

  2. Yep, they do all the dirty work while all we have to do is hang in there.
