Lysistrata   



LYSISTRATA


That is not the same thing. When the soldier returns from the


wars, even though he has white hair, he very soon finds a young


wife. But a woman has only one summer; if she does not make hay


while the sun shines, no one will afterwards have anything to say to


her, and she spends her days consulting oracles that never send her


a husband.


MAGISTRATE


But the old man who can still get an erection...


LYSISTRATA


But you, why don't you get done with it and die? You are rich;


go buy yourself a bier, and I will knead you a honey-cake for


Cerberus. Here, take this garland.


(Drenching him with water.)


CLEONICE


And this one too.


(Drenching him with water.)


MYRRHINE


And these fillets.


(Drenching him with water.)


LYSISTRATA
