Lysistrata   



Yes, if need be.


SECOND WOMAN


Unhappy woman that I am! Alas for my flax! I've left it at home


unstript!


LYSISTRATA


So, here's another trying to escape to go home and strip her flax!


SECOND WOMAN


Oh! I swear by the goddess of light, the instant I have put it


in condition I will come straight back.


LYSISTRATA


You shall do nothing of the kind! If once you began, others


would want to follow suit.


THIRD WOMAN


Oh! goddess divine, Ilithyia, patroness of women in labour,


stay, stay the birth, till I have reached a spot less hallowed than


Athene's mount!


LYSISTRATA


What mean you by these silly tales?


THIRD WOMAN


I am going to have a child-now, this minute!


LYSISTRATA
