>medieval Erasmus said … napowrimo #24.2


Euripides writ the play

don’t they know “`A dogge hath a day”

from the coliseum the spectators watched

hungry for the blood and mayhem

rivalry was wicked in those days

release the dogs

take his soul and be it carried away

to the dark depths from where he came

a lowly man once said “every dog has his day”
