My Ingot Balloon

Translations of ancient words,

How I hate 'em!

Such scholars are but smurky curs

Who'd quote Descartes verbatim

Learned fools with papyrus scrolls

How I loathe 'em

Smirking trollops blow their words

In barely decent clothing.

Book taught drolls with no real heart,

How they bore me!

Plebeian thinkers, boiled in bars

I'd rather go play Bingo!

Players of random games of chance

How d'they do it?

Think of this awhile and stew it!

(In some seething cruet)
