The Wisdom of Diogenes
Diogenes the Dog sat outside
a brothel, shouting, "A beautiful whore
is poisoned honey! Have some pride!
A beautiful whore. . . " The men swore
a bit, tossed some silver, cried
for silence. It wasn’t long before
Diogenes gathered up his money,
struggled to his ruined feet.
“Time for a bit of poisoned honey,”
he said, going in. “Sweet.”
