Lysistrata   


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


You damned women, what do you mean to do here with your water?


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


And you, old death-in-life, with your fire? Is it to cremate


yourself?


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


I am going to build you a pyre to roast your female friends upon.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


And I,-I am going to put out your fire.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


You put out my fire-you?


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Yes, you shall soon see.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


I don't know what prevents me from roasting you with this torch.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


I am getting you a bath ready to clean off the filth.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


A bath for me, you dirty slut?


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Yes, indeed, a nuptial bath-tee heel


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN (turning to his followers)
