Lysistrata   




common sense.


MAGISTRATE (jumping nervously, then striving manfully to regain his


dignity)



Really, my fine lady! Where is my officer? I want him to tie


that woman's hands behind her back.


LYSISTRATA


By Artemis, the virgin goddess! if he touches me with the tip of


his finger, officer of the public peace though he be, let him look out


for himself!


(The first Scythian defecates in terror.)


MAGISTRATE (to another officer)


How now, are you afraid? Seize her, I tell you, round the body.


Two of you at her, and have done with it!


CLEONICE


By Pandrosos! if you lay a hand on her, Ill trample you


underfoot till the crap comes out of you!


(The second Scythian defecates in terror.)


MAGISTRATE


Look at the mess you've made! Where is there another officer? (To


the third Scythian)
Bind that minx first, the one who speaks so


prettily!
