Well, to ponder such things, I
instructed these folks here,
putting logic in my art
and scrutiny, so now they notice
everything and know through and through
most especially how to run
the household better than before,
and they inquire, “How's this doing?
Where's this? Who took that?”

Yes, by gods! In fact, now
every single Athenian goes inside
and yells to his servants
and asks, “Where's my pot?
Who's eaten off the head
of my sardine; My bowl
of yesteryear—has it perished?
Where is yesterday's garlic?
Who nibbled at the olive?”
Before now the biggest dummies
gaping mamma's boys
would just sit like blockheads.
