I seem to be saving Catullus at his most dreadful for last…

CATULLUS 113

Pompey is diligent in his career
same consulate same Rome a different year.
His wife in her own way is just the same,
you know her, Nasal Drip Girl, wossername.
From one or two, it’s now a street parade
of lovers. She works hard at getting laid,
pursues adultery at such high speed,
because she’s swallowed gallons of his seed.

    It is still good that we live in a world where Catullus survived.

    I have an argument that I shall expound on the Internet soon that this is a political allegory, though I need to think out the details more clearly.
